The Stow, Ohio 4th of July parade was today and the color guard kicked it off.
The Stow Band was in doing fancy footwork. 
Iwo Gima was remembered by the WWII Veterans. 
This was a neat paint job. 
You need a few clowns in the parade. 
Parades are so much fun, see what others have shown.

What a fun day and what a great looking parade! Love your photos as always, Tom! So colorful! Sure am glad you had sunshine -- we didn't, looked more like January than July and almost felt like it as well!! Hope you have a great week!

I LOVE a parade, but unfortunately was on the road during the parades this year. It was pouring out. That's an awesome tribute on the pick-up but my favorite that took my breathe away, was the Veterans. I thank each and every one, then and now, for the independence they have contributed to us by their sacrifice.
GOD Bless The USA

Yes, parades are wonderful, Tom... AND we had a bunch of them all around this country for the 4th....

I like parades--but my favorite part of the 4th of July are the fireworks... I'll post our pictures tomorrow.

You took nice pictures of the parade. We didn't go to our hometown's parade this year (which was held on July 3rd). We made alternative plans -- went for a ride on the motorcycle. I had hoped to see parades in at least one of the small towns that we passed through, but there were none.
