Faces of the Fourth…the parade rocked!
What a beautiful way to start the day…
When Pat O’Day & Doug Bison do the announcing of the Fourth of July parade in Friday Harbor, they mention that there are over a thousand people in the parade. As I counted the folks in the nearly sixty floats/entries, I got over two bazillion…it felt like there were more people in the parade than live here. It was a beautiful day with an enthusiastic crowd…and it set the tone for an upbeat, musical, sunny day on the island, topped by fireworks at both ends of the island, at Roche Harbor & in Friday Harbor.
Josie & I got a chance to shoot pictures of folks in the parade, and we decided to concentrate on the smiling faces of folks walking & riding & dancing by. We ended up with two portfolios of friends from the island – look & see who you know! By the way, the pictures aren’t in the order of the parade, exactly – I mixed ‘em up a little – but if you weren’t here, it’ll give you a pretty good feel for the flow of the day!
