I love parades! Just attended the Munster 4th of July parade on Monday. It was the fourth one in two months. First was our hometown parade - called the Good Neighbor Day Parade in early May. Then a Memorial Day Parade in a nearby town. Then we went to a Flag Day parade up in Michigan. What do I love about them?
