Fake Parade Day

Fake Parade Day is a day that is very close to my heart.

This tradition was started last year. My dear friend Taralyn Smith lives near a busy street, and decided to have a Fake Parade Day. It's always just before the 4th or 24th of July. This year it was by the 24th. We made a sign.

Last year, we just waved, but this year we created a new system. When there is a truck, we try to get him to honk. When there are people on bicycles or walking, we cheer, and when there is a lone car, we will all point at it.

This year we came equipped with a cooler full of Otter Pops and water bottles.

Basically, this is the highlight of my summer. Go figure.
