FALSL VILLAGE — The vintage race car parade rolled through Lime Rock, Lakeville and Salisbury on a bright summer afternoon, Thursday, Aug. 30, fetching up in downtown Falls Village.

There were more than 100 cars in the parade, with an emphasis on Bugattis. Mitch Conroy, the parade organizer from Lime Rock Park, said it might be the biggest gathering of Bugattis ever in the Northeast, if not the world. More than 30 of the cars were Bugattis; more are expected to take part in the weekend-long Historic Festival event.
