Yesterday was the 4th of July, 2017. My hometown ended it’s 4th of July celebration with a parade. To get a good spot, usually you have to get there an hour or more before the parade actually starts.
We did go up there an hour early and thought we had a great spot, unfortunately I wish we would have sat elsewhere because some kids sat besides us and they were not really into letting my son catch more candy. Most of the floats/vehicles throw handfuls of candy to the crowd as they go through the parade.
It has been a tradition ever since I was a kid. Now, my son can go through the same 4th of July tradition. He did end up getting quite a lot of candy after all. He even got a hat, a Frisbee and a little football.
Here are 10 photographs that I took during the parade. There are more, but these are the 10 that turned out the best so I chose them to highlight the event.
I am leaving the post open for submissions, so if you had a parade in your town you can post your pictures too! If you want, you can vote for your favorites as well.
Thank you for your time 🙂
