Happy Fourth of July all fellow Americans! Today is a day of celebration, family, watermelon, picnics, brats on the grill, parades and fireworks. Nothing could be better than spending it in small town America located in the heart of Minnesota’s northern lakes. My husband and kids even saw a bald eagle fly right over their head this morning as they were walking to our car. I can’t think of a more symbolic way to start off the day.
Yesterday we had the pleasure of experiencing a real live small town American celebration here in Nisswa and enjoyed all the festivities. There were arts and crafts, tons of food, face painting, hair glitter for the girls, and later on a huge old-fashioned parade. The parade had all the oldies but goodies. Firetrucks, beauty queens, candy tossing, politicians, crazily-decorated floats, and good ole American fun. I could hardly resist to capture it all on film. The whimsical small town fun of the Nisswa Fourth of July parade. Here it is in a series of photos….enjoy!
