Happy Fourth!

Here’s the first round of photos from the Fourth of July Parade. The Mendocino 4th of July Parade is a famous institution ’round these parts (as a perusal of the archives will reveal), and they were out in force as usual this year. This post includes most of the official sort of entries in the parade; tomorrow you’ll get to see hippies and the more…unusual entries.

  1. My fondest memory of that parade may be the naked George Bush (emperor’s new clothes) of five or six years ago. Yes, generally a good parade.
