celebrate our nation’s birthday
all of America is invited
to the parade
where sidewalks are thronged early with spectators
dressed in various summer attire in the colors of red, white, and blue
staking their claim for the best view
to cheer on the marchers passing the road in front of them
hear the local band play “Stars and Stripes”
watch them march to an exuberant drummer and the lead baton twirler
the flag billowing out in front
elaborate color guards maneuvering
dramatic adornments of bunting swagged on buildings and porches
the cannons sounding
free concerts in the park
to C E L E B R A T E * A M E R I C A !
sit back and enjoy the glorious display of fireworks to light up the night sky and all eyes that will be watching!
