If you have the good fortune to catch a small-town parade this Fourth of July, then these pictures will look familiar to you… If not, I hope they are the slice of nostalgia you are looking for today!
A good parade starts with the local veterans carrying our red white and blue flag while you find a place to watch!
You can’t beat the local daycare float, filled with the kids and their creations
Free to be energy independent with this refitted tractor
Colorful floats and old cars aplenty
Horses and ponies make a strong showing
Everyone loves the local high school marching band!
There is always one little girl, decked in her most patriotic, and this one stole the show with her wagon float
Hula-hooping while marching– impressive!
The Bill of Rights float gets a big cheer!
The marching fife band and the colonial ladies are in tune and in step!
Afterwards, a giant slice of watermelon for me…
Now that’s how to celebrate our freedom!!
