We joined the fourth of July Parade this year in C. and dress up the kids bikes accordingly with stars and strips and ribbons. I am biased but I think their bikes turned out flippin' cute! The kids had fun with the parade and stopped half way through to take a brake. It must have been a good corner because my kids ended up with handfuls of candy to take home! Afterwards we went home and played in the sprinkler and got ready for our neighbor hood BBQ.
