Each 4th of July the neighborhood bordering on the seminary puts on a parade featuring anyone and everyone who wants to make the 4 block square walk. Kids decorate their bikes, adults put on the red white and blue and even dogs get slicked up. At the end, there are snowcones, a dunking booth, horse and donkey rides and just plain conversation. This year the weather was perfect, high 70's with nice sunshine. Last year it was 105.
It wouldn't be the Hillcrest neighborhood if Uncle Sam wasn't there.
One family came in a golf cart.
The neighborhood has a small band which played some patriotic tunes beforehand.
The number of people was much larger than last year.
Bikes were dropped.
Horse rides were fun and sort of scary
