scenes from a small town fourth

I can't remember the last time I celebrated a Fourth of July without fireworks over the East River, so it was a unique treat for me to spend this year's Independence Day in a small town in Vermont.

While my hosts joined the town parade on their bikes, I volunteered to act as photographer.

I was happy to see these folks giving out Choose Peace pins at the front of the parade.

There were two of these guys and dueling pop-a-wheelies.

I have no idea what this creature represented, but I dug it.

Many of the parade attractions showcased vehicular power, including this fierce Volvo.

The parade ended at this park, featuring a BBQ attended by the whole town.
