Arrow Rock Fourth of July parade

July 4, 2012
"Yankee Doodle Dandy" and "You're a Grand Old Flag" tooted throughout Arrow Rock's Main Street on Wednesday, July 4,

Friends of Arrow Rock's Kathy Borgman and Arrow Rock Postmaster Tempe McGlaughlin led a small group of kazoo players in a brief rehearsal prior to the yearly Arrow Rock Fourth of July parade. As kazoo rookies and experts hummed out their patriotic tunes, a variety of floats prepared to tour down Main Street in a red, white and blue filled celebration.

A small cluster of onlookers huddled beneath the shops as parade participants tossed candy to grasping children and adults. The parade began with a street-wide flag spread from stone gutter to stone gutter. Arrow Rock Community Fire Department firefighter Jason Hunter drove the department's new fire truck. Several children drove four-wheelers decorated with streamers, flags and teddy bears.
