Fourth of July Parade AND Fireworks!
In any case, there's a collection of almost random photos here. The theme this year was 'heroes,' and since everyone is a hero in his/her own story (what would it mean to be the villain in your own life story?), I think you could have entered in any form you chose for the day. The mowers drill team mowed, the bicyclers biked, the cars drove at funereal pace. Less candy throwing than usual, which seems a good thing. The guitar heroes cornered the market on lycra outfits and wild (especially black) wigs making them look like the Alice Cooper brigade with strong support from the Ozzy Osbourne backup group.
And, absolutely steadfast in their attendance at our July 4th Parade, the Delta Shriners came in their camel car: the Gazeh Geezers. Those guys are really not getting any younger. Do they have new members coming up? Guys who aren't already in their 80's?
