Clowns and cops, freaks and firefighters, a motley stream made its way through downtown Plattsburgh on July 4th. Sights to delight, distract and maybe even disturb. (What's that skeleton doing sitting in that car? Did it wave at me?)
A cross section of America on the march. A man dressed as a woman, camping it up, followed later by a float sponsored by a church that might believe in the "literal truth" of the Bible (including Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13). Clean cut kids displaying their dance steps, precision pacing. And here comes a psychedelic school bus for a laid-back rock band, complete with a long-hair playing his electric guitar on the roof. (Hey, aren't hippies dead?)
Freedom for everyone in all forms.
And plenty of candy for the kids.
More images from the event can be seen here as a slideshow.
