Happy Birthday America, Small Town Style

The nearby small town of Cicero had a 4th of July parade today.
This is what rural America is all about!

Color guard leading off

Its not a parade without fire trucks!

Especially the old ones.

Hamilton county has a piece of the World Trade Center
to be used in a firefighter's memorial, which was reverently observed.

And let's not forget our veterans, who fought for our freedom.

The mascot from the nearby Pork Festival was here.

Red, white & blue were prominent colors

Local folks were invited to enter their favorite parade vehicles,
such as this dragster.

And these antique cars.

The local high school band performed.

There were youngsters

And young at heart.

Even Santa was here chillin' on summer vacation!

Of course, we had horses

And tractors.

And a good time was had by all!
