This parade for the 4th of July started in 1911. It's one of THE OLDEST July 4th parades in the country. IT's such a GREAT time, and GREAT to see this parade. Since moving to Staten Island it has become one of my families traditions!! If you get a chance to see this parade you should. If not for anything else but to thank all the verterans for what they've done for OUR GREAT COUNTRY!!!

That looks like a super cool parade!
Nice captures, thanks!
Thanx Carlton. The parade is absolutely incredible. The people that put it on, that are in it and are there just to watch, are like one big family. It's such a nice thing to see people from all walks of like come together for something joyous and fun.

Those are really nice pictures of a wonderful parade. I love the 4th of July parades and events that go on around the country, especially in small town America.

Keeping with that, if we're going to talk about old parades and Independence Day celebrations, I'll have to brag about my town, as it has the oldest continually running Ind. Day celebration in the country, going back to 1813.

Looks like fun!!! :smile: I took a ton of pics of the parade we went to yesterday (tons and tons o' fire trucks). Despite the rain and drizzle, it was a great time.

Joe, your pictures are really improving. You did a nice job of getting down to the level in many of these. :smile:

Glenn, thank you very much. My boy is quite the lady's man!! He knew that lil girl for 5 minutes, and had her holding his hand and by her side the WHOLE day!! :cool:

Nice series Joe! You definitely captured the feeling of the parade. I really like #7. You caught a very nice, natural moment there.
Thanx Larry! Much appreciated. That's my beautiful wife feeding my Princess.
