The city of Highland and Highland Area Chamber of Commerce filled with streets with civic pride, as well as red with and blue, as they helped the U.S. to celebrate its 236th birthday. Old Glory lined the parade route waving to the nearly 100 parade entries. The streets were also lined with patriots, cheering on the colorful floats, clowns, classic car, police cars, fire engines, horses, and numerous other celebrants as they streamed down the parade route.

The Grand Marshall was our very own Penny Lilburn, who was selected for her work with for the community. The Highland Senior Center was also represented with its own flotilla of kazoo playing band members riding our decorated seniormobile. The group played George M. Cohan favorites “You’re A Grand Old Flag,” and “Yankee Doodle Dandy” as well as the revolutionary hit “Yankee Doodle,” down the parade route.

Our float was just one of many groups who showed up not only to promote themselves, but to honor this great nation. We would like to thank everyone who showed up to show their pride America and especially those who either rode and played, or supported our group on the sidelines.
