Patriots on parade
Quite a turnout at the annual Elizabeth Fourth of July Parade today. The walk around the block was fun and featured a few more cars but fewer motorcycles this year. The real action came afterward, of course, in Hardin's backyard. That's Marley and Hardin (above) reading from the Declaration of Independence. There were other readings and of course songs. Not to mention hot dogs and lemonade and cookies and chips. I've got a video of what's sure to be a new July 4 tradition, Diet Coke and Mentos. I hope to post it somewhere soon.
Clearly the biggest hit was Lahleh Emadi, dressed as Paula Revere - complete with bell to warn against approaching British soldiers. She won the prize for best costume.
