ADD YOUR OWN: Photos From Myopia Hunt Horse Parade and Harvest Festival

Add your own photos of Satiuday's Myopia Hunt horse parade and Harvest in the Village Marketplace in Hamilton and Wenham.

A parade of horses from the Myopia Hunt foxhunt came through downtown Hamilton to kick off Saturday's Harvest in the Village Marketplace.

Where were the hounds?

If I heard it correctly - first there was a "concern" over how this would work with the Hamilton leash law (yep) - and in the end, a question on "insurance liability" killed the hounds (yep) I guess this is a sign of the times - no matter what we want to believe - the spirit of Hamilton as a true "horse and hound town" is basically dead. So - it probably won't be too long before "liberals and lawyers" will be what people think of when they hear of the town named "Hamilton". So sad.

We were sad not to have our hounds out with us on the parade yesterday. If people would like to see the hounds in the parade next year, perhaps you could let the folks in townhall know. We could bring some whippers-in on foot to help insure the safety of the public. That said, it was very fun to be out in a parade, and we hope everyone in town enjoyed it as much as we did! This could be the beginning of a lovely tradition for Hamilton.

I'm certain that walking the horses around town will bring visitors/shoppers to Hamilton in droves! Yes...and they can book rooms at the Patton Inn at the same time! Great work,TM and BOS!
