Just a quick post to wish everybody a Happy and Safe Independence Day!
We live in the town which hosts the first 4th of July parade nationwide – when the clock strikes midnight on July 3, the parade starts in Gatlinburg. We are on Eastern Standard Time.
It’s 10:30pm as I type and people are setting up their chairs and already sitting down, waiting, waiting, waiting.
My husband and I watched the parade live 10 years ago, when we were dating and were looking for excuses to spend time together. I cannot believe it has already been a decade since that day…
I think everybody should experience this midnight parade at least once in their lives.
