McKinney Fourth of July Parade…God Bless America!!

Fourth of July seems to always bring fond memories as I think back on years gone by. Yesterday was no exception! Many more fun new memories we made as we joined in the Annual fun of the Fourth of July Parade which is held each year on the Square in Downtown McKinney.

It was an old-fashioned small town parade that included beautiful old classic cars, boy scouts, girls scouts, city officials, stunning horses and even Johnny Quinn, the Olympic Bob Sledder, who served as the Grand Marshall of the Parade.

The cars were just beautiful all decorated in flags and streamers. They were driven by their proud owners who would honk and rev up their engines as they would pass by.

Some of my favorite parade participants were the horses. They pranced down the street looking so majestic. Most were also all decked out with Red, White and Blue and seemed to know that this was a special day.

To me, the best part of the Fourth of July Parade by far were the children! They were all dressed in their special outfits and carrying their little flags so proudly. I would have loved to see them marching down the street all together. Now THAT would have been special. 🙂
