HATFIELD — The town on Sunday celebrated its 350th anniversary with a parade featuring a number of divisions that showcased all aspects of its long history.

The event was delayed a year by the pandemic, but as at least one official noted, the parade still took place one day before the town’s 351st birthday on Monday, Memorial Day.
