Parade......Ellen loves that word!!
There was a parade in a town close to us, Lititz, and we decided to go. Ellen was soooooo excited all day! She watched it for many years on TV. Our cable company is always there and shows it live.
Hubs hurried home from work, we loaded up our chairs and some snacks and we were off. We found a spot along Broad Street in the shade and waited for the parade to start.
(Pics taken with my phone because I left my camera at home where it was charging. What good is a charged battery if you forget the camera!)
Is that a happy face, or what?!!
The parade included.....
Boy Scout Troops
and proud parents
Fire Engines, old and new
we came home with LOADS of candy!
Ellen says, I'm loving this!
After the parade, we walked to Lititz Springs Park to hear the 50's Band, Flamin Dick and the Hot Rods. Again, Ellen has watched the show on TV for years and loved dancing to their music. How neat to be there to hear them live! I love 50's music too. We found a spot just behind the paved area to place our chairs.
There were too many people behind us for the first set so Ellen didn't do much dancing. During the break we bought some soft pretzels that were yummy, even tho we spent $10 for 3 of them. I heard a comment from a passerby who said, "$3.50 for a hunk of dough"! Yeah, but they were good =)
Many people left before the second half of the show. Ellen had room to dance. And dance she did!
She was having a great time!
What a neat way to start a fun Holiday! We will park our car along a hillside and sit in a field to watch the Lititz fire works tonight. Ellen enjoys them more from a distance.
There is also a church picnic and another picnic, patriotic concert and another fire works show in store for us before this Holiday passes.
Love this Holiday!
Happy Fourth of July!
