|PJ waiting for parade.|
I happened to be in Cleveland County this year for the Fourth, and my friend PJ and I found us a shady spot along Main Street to view the parade. Folks began lining up along the parade route early in the morning anticipating the 9:00 am event.

Many folks from the older to the very young were decked out in patriotic colors. It was great for "people watching" even before the parade began.
|I love this hat.|
The youth from Lattimore Baptist Church were selling biscuits along Main Street before the parade began, and I had my opportunity to have a livermush biscuit. So good!!!!!

|Here comes the parade.|
There was the color guard and then vehicles of all kinds--- vintage cars, lawn mowers, tractors---, people walking and those on horseback.

|What's a parade without horses?|
After the parade folks gathered over at the ball field for food, games, and more celebration.

This is the perfect way to celebrate the Fourth of July.
