Massena, NY, Jul 13, 2009 — Saturday's downpours cut short the St. Lawrence Seaway's 50th anniversary parade. Still, plenty of marching bands and floats did delight the crowd lining Main Street in downtown Massena before the rains came. Massena's been hit hard lately by plant shutdowns and layoffs at General Motors and Alcoa. But the pride of hosting one of America's engineering marvels was still on display.
