I love celebrating the 4th of July with my family on Cape Cod. I have fond memories as a little girl playing with sparklers. In fact, we looked forward to them each year. Unfortunately, fireworks, and yes-sadly sparklers, are illegal in the state of Massachusetts. This year I thought that it would be fun to make some sparklers out of glitter bombed tulle fabric from my local fabric store. With a little bit of help from the kiddos and bit in ingenuity, we were able to make these sparkler beauties to bring the the local parade.
Scenes from the parade on Main St, Cotuit
Children decorated their bikes and wagons.
Antique cars paraded patriotically one by one.
Children threw candy from classic cars.
A local artist captures the scene.
Hydrangeas and roses quietly watched as people passed by
all on the 4th of July.
Sunshine was not happy that we were not home all day. I think she missed us.
Hope you and your family had a wonderful 4th of July weekend!
