First was an outdoor band concert on Sunday night (July 3) in the neighboring town of Onancock . . .
Not only was there free outdoor music, but an ice cream social with FREE ice cream . . . what a combination.
WHO doesn’t love ice cream on a warm summer night?
Monday, we went to the nearby town of Accomac for the traditional non-motorized July 4th parade which featured marchers, cyclists and horses .
A fire engines break down called for a tow – by dad.
After the parade lots of folks, including us, headed to the Eastern Shore Public Library for the Annual Firecracker Book Sale. Grenville marched in the parade with a billboard advertising the sale – that’s him in the middle below.
We bought our share of books, which for $20 included a FREE library tote bag. We got a pile that included reference books, summer reading and story books for the grandkids – all great bargains.
Late afternoon on July 4 featured the Onancock Doo Dah Parade which celebrated liberty and lunacy. Grenville shot a video of the parade in all its wonderful craziness.
Anything went (literally) in this parade from pickup trucks to decorated bikes and golf carts. There’s no pre-registration needed . . .
The only requirement was to show up in costume, and, in this parade – the stranger, the better . . .
Head to toe – outfits were unique and colorful . . .
We had a very fun holiday weekend (does it show?)
