Coddington/The Reporter ROXBURY — The Celebrate Roxbury activities were many in that community on Saturday. Before the always-expected parade, dozens of vendors lined both sides of Main Street with a wide selection of hand-made items from as far away as Thailand.

Numerous food vendors from barbecued chicken to tacos to ice cream lined all sides of the entries to Kirkside Park.

There was a variety of activities for children in the park, as well. Many area organizations were on hand, as well.

The weather was not too hot on Saturday, and everyone appreciated that.

Local businesses were open, and also were kept busy.
