Hometown 4th of July

River Oaks Circle 4th of July

The best little parade you’ll ever experience. Takes about 20 minutes. The fire truck (whoop, whoop) leading the kids who are riding decorated bicycles and little open-top jeeps -- followed by the antique cars and hot rods, a couple of clowns, a few dogs, and some teens in a golf cart throwing candy.

Flags line the street from Elmwood all the way up and around the River Oaks circle. A couple ladies brought rocking chairs down to the end of their driveway to watch. Other families made a party of it, with blankets on the lawn and babies wearing red, white and blue. So much simple fun.

Then finish off the day, with an outdoor concert on the lawn of the Episcopal Church of the Heavenly Rest.
