4th of July 2012 was sunny and hot but the Capitol Hill 4th of July Parade on Barracks Row drew big attendance and a record number of marchers. Here are some shots of the day starting with Tommy Wells, the Grand Marshal,l and followed by the Commandant's Own Drum and Bugle Corp.
It's All Good in the Hood was a group of 10th Street, SE, neighbors; David and Danette Sheldon led a group from their Military Defense organization,512 8th Street, SE; the Girl Scouts were out in record number and the contestants from all 50 of the Miss United States pageants brought their beauty and grace to the celebration.
The parade was full of kids, dogs, wagons and fun. We'll add more pictures to the 2012 4th of July Album next week.
