FOURTH OF JULY IN COLD SPRING
UPDATED- with photos.
For early photos of the parade and events, click HERE. The Community Day parade stepped off from Chestnut Street at 3 p.m. and headed north toward the intersection with Main Street. The mood was lively and upbeat as honor guards, firefighters, firetrucks, civic groups, veterans, politicians and other marchers turned at Main and headed toward the waterfront.
The heat, though, was sweltering, and took a toll on some. Throughout late afternoon, people continued to stream downtown and toward the waterfront, anticipating waterside activities, evening music and the fireworks.
As the parade wound down Main, Trustee Bruce Campbell announced every participant from in front of Village Hall. A bicycle decorating contest followed the parade, with judging of the best-decorated bicycles.
