A Small Town Fourth of July
The best celebrations are those that take place in a small town. My town is small by any definition, even with the influx of the summer visitors. But, it certainly knows how to throw a party, especially around Independence Day. People come from all over the area to see our parade. I hope these photos do justice to just how wonderful and just how much fun it was.
Ironically, I had to work this 4th as well. However, the restaurant is only a block away from where the town sets off its fireworks every year. As soon as we heard the first boom, all of us ran outside to watch. Luckily, there were only a few customers left and they came out with us as well. They were simply amazing and went on for quite a while. It was the perfect way to end my first 4th in a long time.
