July 12, 2013 in Events
America has been celebrating its birthday every day on July 4th for over 200 years. We were fortunate to be able to hang out in our home town of Ann Arbor and take part in plenty of transitional festivities! Early morning in downtown Ann Arbor MI, Main street hosted its annual 4th of July street parade. Even with everyone dressed in red white and blue to celebrate Americas independence, it was very much so an Ann Arbor Event.
“I really like how families can come out with the kids. It’s so much fun to watch them collect candy” Ann Arbor Resident Shelly Townsen said.
The parade meant many things for many people. Art, expression, tribute, and tradition, but the one thing in common was America. Artist, performers, musicians, and organization made special appearances in likes of celebrating with family friends, and fellow neighbors.
“It was nice to see so many organizations involved with community events.” say’s Marc Ashtley, whom recently moved to Michigan to raise his family. The parade on July 4th is only one of the super fun family friendly events the city of Ann Arbor is known and loved for.
