The July 4Th celebration is full of traditions. We go to the Stow, Ohio parade every year. My wife and I get there 2 hours early to get prime seating. The parade lasts about two hours. The parade always opens up with a military honor guard.
This was the neatest car in the dignitary section.
The Stow Band performed and there was some flipping going on.
This is the police honor guard with the Ohio flag flying with Old Glory.
This was the neatest custom car in the parade. Click on it and give it a once over.
The rest of the day was quite busy. We had our annual Applebee's luncheon with the grandchildren. Kent has a festival with lots of vendors and entertainment. Bobbie, our friend, had a picnic for family and us, the "adopted family". Kent had fireworks in the evening. It was a long day of partying. We had one day to wind down before vacation.
