BAR HARBOR's FOURTH OF JULY PARADE (ME)



DAY 11




ATTENTION!

Since we are going to be here in Acadia National Park for two weeks and we'll be taking hundreds of photos, I thought I'd bring you a slideshow of each day's highlights in a separate post. At the end of the two weeks you'll get our typical post including campground and travel reviews, along with our daily musings of what we've been doing when not out taking photos!


Here are some photos from the Fourth of July parade we watched in Bar Harbor, ME.



Every 4th of July Parade should start with a salute to the Armed Forces.
The Bar Harbor Fire Department was well received by the parade goers.
The following automobiles are all members of the Seal Cove Auto Museum
Even the kids get to participate in the festivities, as long as they stayed seated!
The Shriners are always a big hit with their little cars.
The nearby town of Tremont sent an EMT unit for the parade.
Every New England parade seems to have at least one bagpipe group.
Probably my favorite entry in the entire parade...
...go-carts set up to look like semi-tractor trucks.
The original Big Wheel!
Does anybody know what kind of car this is? I'll bet you don't.
It's a Chevy COWMARO
The Acadia National Park Volunteers showed up with their shovels and rakes, ready to go to work cleaning up I guess.
Another old car with a very big flag!
Hey buddy, that's a pretty fancy golf cart you have there!
Even Smokey the Bear showed up to wave at the crowds.
This is the only day of the year he legally gets to drive his tractor down Main Street. You bet he showed up for the parade.
