We went to the 4 of July Parade--which was actually held on the 5th. We watched the pre-parade because the boy was walking with his Karate school. We stood on the edge of the street and cheered for him. Once he had gone by, we paid little attention to anything parade-wise.
Mainly because Munchkin had found a little platform and spent the rest of our time there entertaining us.
"Introducing the famous Munchkin!" Followed by a dance. Over and over.
