Off for the 4th of July festivities. We arrived at our parade viewing site about 10:30 for the 11:15 start. Without much thought, we ended up standing on a little rise under a tree. Boy, were we grateful for that tree by the end of the parade! The sun came out and it was very hot and muggy.
The parade began with Police motor cycles (doing riding trick) and then representatives from the military forces each with their own troops and band. They were followed by ...
