Everyone Loves A Parade


Free Flags

Salute the Flag


PWC's Finest


Uncle Sam and Lady Liberty



The MUST HAVE firetrucks !



BUT ...
too many POLITICAL REFERENCES !!



Now that I watch a parade through the eyes of an adult instead of that through a childs ....
The local hometown parade this year was a bit disappointing ...
Bring back the military marching groups, the boys and girls on their decorated bikes, the marching bands, the floats (homemade ones used to be so creative), the Brownies, the Cub Scouts, the baton twirlers and such ....
And tell all the political groups to stay home !! I know that we are in the midst of campaigning for the elections coming up, but when the politcal groups outnumber the rest of the 2 hour parade - it gets a little boring - I can imagine how the children felt.
Have a Happy and Safe
Fourth of July

It looks quite a colourful parade but I think I would feel the same about political groups!

I have noticed that at the last few parades. Still looked like a fun parade though!

Thank you so much for the light up pen - it's super fun. I had to hide it from the kids! : )

Great photos, I can't believe I missed my first 4th July (was in the UK).
Everything here seems to be about the election at the minute though.

I love the parade!!! I love the 4th! It's just something about it! Watermelon, fireworks, the sun, the lake, parades, friends, good food! It's a blast!!!!

I agree about the political part! Your pictures were still fun though! Hope you still managed to have a lovely 4th.
