Edmonds 4th of July Parade

Everybody loves a parade. It has been years since I've been to a parade. The last parade was the Fremont Solstice Parade which is totally different. G had to work this year so I decided to check out the local 4th of July parade in Edmonds.

The crowds had already started to gather around 11:30am. I joined in and followed several families down to where the parade was starting at 6th and Main. People were lined up with their chairs along the route. Today was pretty hot and most of places were in the sun. I walked a block or so and found a place under a large tree in the shade. Perfect.

It wasn't too crowded at all. Everyone right at the sidewalk edge had low chairs. I was talking with another woman and she said this was the 9th parade and it is sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce and local businesses.

It had a little bit of everything - but mostly decorated cars and marching groups. It only lasted an hour but it was fun and different thing to do.

Happy 4th everyone!

Hi Marta, great photos! I enjoy parades too. I had to crack up at the shopping cart drill team and the band player with the water hat!

Sounds like a really fun time and you took some great photos to capture the celebration!

Thanks for sharing and have a great day today!

I love the look of your parade - ordinary people in their July 4th finery having a great time. What could be better?
