A good crowd gathered late this morning in the Village of La Mesa for the big 23rd Annual Flag Day Parade!
Excited people–young and old, kids and parents, friends and neighbors–lined the sidewalks on either side of La Mesa Boulevard to watch heroes and active members of the community pass by in a sea of American flags.
Flags waved for marching bands, veterans, beauty queens, scout troops, youthful dancers, politicians–everything you’d expect from this red, white and blue slice of Americana!
The patriotic spectacle is a popular La Mesa tradition that I personally hadn’t seen until today.
I took lots of colorful photographs that you, too, might enjoy…
I live in downtown San Diego and love to walk around with my camera! You can follow Cool San Diego Sights via Facebook or Twitter!
