Fourth of July Parade

We had been house sitting in June and we were invited back for the 4th of July Parade. We decided it would be a fun way to celebrate. I am not sure the last time that I went to a 4th of July Parade. Maybe 1976 for the bicentennial celebration.

It was just a small town parade. It began with all kids and grandkids riding their bikes and scooters. They were throwing candy. There were not that many people there so my kids go plenty of candy which they won't eat. I did eat the Reese peanut butter cup.

Then there was a small band. This is an annual event which began in 1976 and continues every year.

Then came the old cars. It was fun to stand and watch the cars.

I am not sure if the cars are people that live on the points or if they come from other places.

Where the parade ended there were hot dogs, snow cones, and drinks for sale. As well as band playing there in the front yard. It is definitely a neighborhood parade. It was fun to join in the fun and sit on the front porch and listen to the band while enjoying our hot dogs.

Happy birthday America.
