The annual Northside Fourth of July Parade is an all-out celebration of independence, community, small business and individuality. Thousands lined the streets to see creative handmade floats from vintage stores, bars and community organizations; local marching bands; drill teams; every local politician youve ever heard of; ladies dancing with lawn chairs; guys dancing with power tools; and other unexpected and delightful displays of pride and spirit.
The parade coincided with the two-day Rock N Roll carnival, a family-friendly music and beer-fueled romp in Hoffner Park featuring free live music on two stages.
