Mother Nature may have started July 4 off with some rain showers, but that didn't stop the Hyde Park 4th of July parade from stepping off and heading North on 9.

The number of spectators may have been a little less than warmer, sunnier years, but those who were there had plenty of spirit.

I was so impressed with the parade participants, because by the time they made it to the reviewing stand they were pretty much soaked through, but that didn't keep them from giving us some pretty great performances. Thanks to everyone who came out.
