4th of July, 2017 a success!

It wasn’t the ideal weather conditions in Lexington today with a steady to often times, gentle rain falling, but it didn’t dampen too many spirits as people came out to the Festival downtown, and then the Parade at 2:00pm.

With people from all walks of life, it was a festive and enjoyable time for all, especially the kids!

There was plenty of food…

And yes… booze! And plenty of extra’s.

I can only imagine some of those who par-took of this grainy beverage weren’t too far from the port-a-potty.

Ronald McDonald showed up for the Parade, and then later that night at UK’s Arboretum the fireworks began promptly at 10:00pm.

So, all-in-all it was a great day to be living in the Bluegrass and people seemed to really enjoy themselves. I know I did. See you next year!
