Photo Friday: Everybody Loves a Parade

For the last 12 years or so I've hosted an annual 4th of July parade for the kids in our little neighborhood.  It's probably time I passed the torch to someone else, as my kids are both teenagers now and are no longer interested in decorating their bikes with streamers and circling the tract.

Running into a local parade while on vacation, however, is one of my favorite travel accidents.  The costumes, the culture, and the audience of townfolk are all so endearing.

  1. I always love a parade - but they seem so much more exciting when happened upon while traveling! Great photos!

  2. Those all look like fun parades to have happened upon. And I love the bike parade. What a very sweet tradition.

  3. I conceive you have noted some very interesting points, regards for the post.
