I am remiss at posting more of my adventures in Cape May. It’s been a long and busy summer and now that it’s after Labor Day, I feel it an appropriate time to share with you a couple more Cape May posts.
Small town parades ~ you just gotta love ’em. And I adore the Fourth of July parade down Beach Avenue each year in charming Cape May, NJ. This particular 4th was steamy hot but, the parade participants hung in there with all of their colorful costumes, all with smiling faces and all proud to be Americans. The parade route starts at Philadelphia Avenue down Beach Avenue to Patterson Avenue. Capt. William Kelly, Commanding Officer of the U.S.C.G. Training Center in Cape May served as Grand Marshal and his entourage included the U.S. Coast Guard Band and Color Guard. Other entries were: Mayor Dr. Edward Mahaney and city council, VFW Post 386, American Legion Post 193, Congress Street Brass Band, Super Girl, the Forgotten Warriors Museum, Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts and Dr. Emlen Physick, Bonsal Blues Band, The Duffy String Band, The Quaker City String Band, and The Fralinger String Band. The parade is always a joy. And don’t forget about the fireworks extravaganza each 4th of July in Cape May. The show is spectacular. Enjoy!
