Today’s Independence Day parade in Scripps Ranch was a colorful example of good old-fashioned Americana!
Neighbors came out for a patriotic community parade that wound along several residential streets.
Families sat in lawn chairs on the sidewalk or under canopies on front lawns. Small flags were waved by many hands. As each parade entry passed by, rousing cheers erupted!
Politicians waved as they passed the crowd. Guys drove their red, white and blue decorated vintage cars by, wearing Uncle Sam hats. High school cheerleaders performed their routine for the parade judges. Local youth sport teams walked by holding up trophies. Little Leaguers pitched candy to the crowd. Scouts ambled by, some shy, others hamming it up. A church had a mobile pastor dunking booth. A waving, smiling group celebrated diversity. A local fitness group dropped down periodically to perform pushups on the street.
There were cheers for everybody.
What seemed most remarkable to me was how the many members of a large community can come together as one family.
