The Darien VFW Post 6933 hosted the town's 14 th  annual Darien Push-n-Pull Parade on 
July 4, 2018 . The traditional parade consists of various young marchers and their families who decorate bicycles and wagons in patriotic colors — always joined of course by Uncle Sam. Town officials attending included Sen. Bob Duff, State Rep. Terrie Wood, and Selectman Susan Marks.

Marchers assembled at the Goodwives Shopping Center around 9:30 a.m., with a band playing around and the parade kicking off around 10:30 am.  The parade ended at Tilley Pond, where there were food trucks and entertainment for the children.
