Fourth of July Festivities

A red white and blue tow truck

plus Uncle Sam on a unicycle......

It's a Fourth of July Parade!

But it's a little different..... there are no fire trucks or marching bands.

Just kids, kids and more kids!  

It's the Children's Annual Bike Parade down Main Street.

All types of decorated bikes, scooters and strollers!  

Following the parade, the kids (all several hundred of them) 
are treated to hot dogs, watermelon and ice cream!  

We're off to listen to the band and watch the fireworks at VMI!  

Happy Fourth of July!!  


  1. i can't imagine all the parents walking/running along with their young uns as they ride. :)

  2. What a perfect parade! Hope you enjoyed!!

  3. These scenes reminded me of the July 4th parade here as there are lots of bikes and kids, but ours is much smaller in terms of people. Everyone gets ice pops on the courthouse lawn (no hot dogs or watermelon) and alas no fireworks. Seems like you had a nice celebration.

  4. What a wonderful parade! Kids galore; much better than fire trucks and bands!

  5. Love your parade and especially Unc. Sam! Every photo is so colorful, well done, Grace!

  6. LOVE that last shot .. you've got a very good eye!
