The 4th of July celebration at Yarrow and Hunts Point continues with a pet parade at Mary Elmore’s front yard. As far as I can tell, Mary has been hosting the pet parade for a long time, and her front yard is more than big enough to host the event (makes me wonder how big the back yard is).
While it’s billed as a pet parade and cats are welcome, it’s really all dogs (there were two chickens). The theme for the parade was Hawaiian and the children and parents were encouraged to give their best interpretation of the theme. We just dressed up Sally’s dog in a Hawaiian shirt but some families took it to the extreme.
Enjoy the video and photos. The 4th of July celebration continues tonight with a street party. This is a great way to get to know the neighbors better.
