Ridgewood Independence Day Parade, July 4, 2012

The parade begins to take shape.

Spectators arrive.

Refreshments get organized.

The backup lead car, in case the fire trucks are on a call.

Out for a walk.

The fire department leads the parade.

And many bike riders, walkers, and others followed along.

A second truck follows at the end of the parade.

And away they go.

And here they come, after a trip around the neighborhood.

Time for refreshments.
