July 4th started with the City of Ketchikan Parade. Decibels above 90 thanks to loud fire trucks and 18 wheelers carrying high school graduation classes from 1982, 1992, 2002, 2012 and 2023. There was a running club, political candidates, military members from the Coast Guard, lots of Boy Scouts, but no marching bands :( Most every parade participant scattered hard candies to the street sides where young, cutie urchins swept up the bootie! It was great to be at the beginning of the parade where the crowd was overwhelmingly local. Food vendors did a brisk business. But no ice cream was available :( We couldn't find the reindeer hot dog vendor either!
Our new friends, Ralph from Sweet Thursday and Lydia and Patrick from Tenacious came to 'Julia Max' for dessert. Sue's strawberry shortcake was el primo, a favorite for everyone. The weather clouded over and threatened rain by fireworks time so we dispersed at end of day.
