I spent July 4th in Maine. I was so excited to go to a real live July 4th parade in a remote, New Englandy part of the country and knew in my heart of hearts that it would be a parade I would remember forever.
I was wrong.
It was lame.
I have the photos to prove it.
The place was Freeport, Maine, the home of LL Bean!! The best part of the parade was the Bean Boot in front of the LL Bean flagship store open 24 hours, 7 days, 365 days a year. Too bad I did not set foot inside, and too bad this is as good as the parade got.
Crazy vehicle honoring all kinds of stuff from the Korean War to the destruction of the Twin Towers.
My personal favorite, the saddest GOP elephant in the world.
They had that wave thing down better than any Maine teen USA ever, really!
I just liked this shot, but the clown was really lame.
Pretty much of the end of the parade was a really sad girl in the back of a non-descript convertible who clearly had not practiced the wave action nearly as much as the Maine Teen USA gals had.
That is pretty much it. Maine is awsome adn I loved my visit adn I cannot wait to go back next year, but I think I might just have to skip the July 4th parade in Freeport.
