I love love love parades! As I've mentioned, as a child we used to have a float in the 4th of July parade. Growing up I always got up early to make sure I was able to watch the WHOLE Macy's Day parade and whenever I can, I love going to a parade. I don't know why I love them so much, I guess everyone just seems so happy at parades, smiling and laughing, throwing candy, entertaining. Parades are also always on holidays, and boy do I love any type of holiday.
This year the parade in Bethany was pretty good (although every year we say we could beat everyone if we did a float). Enjoy a few pictures from the event:

After the parade we stopped by the pie eating contest and witnessed the children's pie eating contest, take a look at this little guy, he had no idea what was going on and just stuck his whole head in the pie, so cute!
Overall, it was a great parade and a wonderful weekend (15 people sleeping in a 4 bedroom house, WOW). Great family time and lots of funny memories! How was your 4th, do you go to a parade every year? Does it bring back lots of memories?
