Fairfield Harbour 4th of July Parade!

The day was hot as a firecracker, but Harbourites decked out in red, white, and blue to flaunt their patriotic spirit for the 3rd annual 4th of July Parade. With 32 golf carts, seven cars, and 23 bikes, the competition was tough to garner the top prize.

There was laughter, cheers, and applause as the parade proceeded down Pelican Drive to culminate at Pelican Park. At Pelican Park, Tom and Darlin’ lead the charge with patriotic and dance music. Food trucks were on hand to satisfy the hungry and thirsty.
