22nd Annual Britton Farms 4th of July Parade

The 22nd annual Britton Farms 4th of July Bike Parade took place on Saturday, July 5, 2014, and was blessed with perfect weather.  The event, which was organized by Chris Keidel, was attended by between 40 and 50 kids, most of whom brought along one or more parental units.  The Balloon Lady was a big hit.  This year, frozen Popsicles replaced the previously traditional watermelons, a change which delighted kids as well as adults, since frozen Popsicles seem to not attract flies.  BFH Association officers Glen Bolognese and John Stanton helped Chris out by judging the decorated bicycles entered in the parade and awarded prizes to 5 of the participants.
