Round Top 4th of July Parade

Round Top has the most wonderful 4th of July parade every year.  It just teams with patriotism and values and what our country is all about.  We try to attend every year.   This is a collection of photos I took of the floats and entry in the parade that don’t include the horse entries and the car/tractor entries.  Those will be published in a different blog shortly.  Check out all the RED, WHITE, AND BLUE!   Round Top et all are proud to be Americans!
