4th of July Parade, Part One

Old Mill Point has its very own 4th of July parade each year, thanks to the Doyle Family Minutemen (and women!) The neighborhood turns out to both watch and participate...

Eager marchers get their "floats" together, don their red white and blue gear, and head down Pine Lane to line up with the rest of the decorated bikes, scooters, strollers, dogs...

Neighbors have started to bring out the lawn chairs early, making it more and more "official" as the years go by. It isn't as bad as jockeying for chair space at the Chatham parade (where I need to get in my car at 4:30 a.m. to drive over with our parade chairs!) The OMP parade route is a lot more relaxed.
Even the neighborhood dogs get front-row seats to watch the parade march on by.
