Pulled into Fairplay on the 4th and saw an honor guard type with a sign in the back of his truck advertising a parade and that line up was at 11:30. Stopped and mentioned that I heard the parade was cancelled and he fired back with “how do you cancel Independence Day?”. Long story short, a group of locals decided to do their own parade. They graciously gave us some flags, streamers, balloons, and tape to doll up my truck and a couple of handfuls of candy to throw as well.
Ended up being about one of ten or so vehicles following the honor guard down their main street while my daughter threw candy from the back seat. The town folk seemed excited and supportive even though no sirens from first responder vehicles which were obviously absent. Proves Covid doesn’t dampen all spirits. An impromptu stop ended up making for quite a memorable time .
