We all know what the Americans are like. And 4th of July is the big summer holiday. So why not have a parade?
No parade is complete without a fire truck!
Yes, the woman above has balls of yarn for her Princess Leia hair.
The inevitable backup.
Some fancy cars...
The kiddies get in on the fun as well.
Ooooo, livestock! (Note the man carrying the bucket and shovel walking behind...)
And let's end it all with a biiiiig truck.
The parade is for a small town, and most of the people in the parade either squirt water guns at the spectators, or throw out candy. When we got back in our car, we had bits of chocolate thrown through the window (it's incredibly safe here. We don't lock the doors to the car or the house, we leave keys in the ignition, and there isn't even a full time police officer out here).
I'd like to point out, the rest of the day was enjoyed with a barbeque at home and lots of beer and lemonade.
