4th of July

Our community does a great job celebrating the 4th of July.  The day begins with the Noon Lions sponsoring a pancake breakfast at the community center.  Hundreds of people will choose to participate in this event.  Then the town sponsors a parade, normally starting at ten o’clock.  The parade is well attended with crowds lining the streets.  The children are especially excited about the opportunity to gather candy, lots of candy.  Then there are a variety of food booths and activities in the main park.  Those activities normally run into the afternoon.  For the evening fireworks display we drive over to the next town where there is a huge party going on.  In the park and around town, thousands of people are grilling, playing games, buying still more food at more concession stands and generally having a great time.  The fireworks display is outstanding.  Even the huge traffic jam is peaceful and friendly, no honking, as everyone tries to find their way home .

The only problem is that it can be a really long day. 

This year, since the 4th is on a Sunday, the schedule is a little different.  The parade will be at six o’clock Saturday evening, not Sunday morning.  I think that everything else remains the same.  It should be a good time.
