Local TV legend Rex Trailer to be honored in Natick parade

The memory of Rex Trailer, host of the long-running Boston children’s television show “Boomtown,” will live on in Natick’s Fourth of July parade, a fitting tribute to the event’s longtime headliner.

Natick Friends of the 4th will honor Trailer, who died earlier this year, by naming him as the event's “grand marshal in memoriam.”
