Along some stretches of the 3oth Annual Allston-Brighton Parade on Sunday, mayoral hopefuls appeared to outnumber voters who had made up their minds.
Two days before Boston voters hit the polls, at least six of the people vying to succeed Mayor Thomas M. Menino made their way down about 2 miles of sunny parade route in between marching bands and bagpipers.
But waves, smiles, and quick handshakes did not seem to move the many undecided voters who lined the route toward a definite choice.
Allston resident John Bennett, 77, watched some of the candidates go by and said seeing them helped a little, but not enough to narrow it down.
“I’ll make the decision later on,” he said, leaving open the possibility that he might pick on Tuesday, the day of the preliminary election.
