N.Y. town plans ‘Redneck’ theme for 4th Of July parade

SALEM, N.Y. (AP) -- You might be a redneck if you dont object to a rural upstate New York towns theme for its annual Fourth of July parade.

But some people around Salem arent amused by parade organizers decision to go with Redneck Summer for this years theme.

The volunteer fire department stages the annual holiday parade in Salem, a farming community located on the Vermont border 40 miles northeast of Albany.

One organizer tells The Post-Star of Glens Falls that the number of groups participating had decreased, so they decided on the redneck theme to spice it up a little bit.

A few people have objected, including Mary Greene. She calls the theme disturbing and says redneck doesnt have a good connotation. And shes aghast that groups will be vying for the best redneck float.
