The Town of Palisade observes Independence Day with a victory lap parade around the Palisade Fire Station. Independence Day is a celebration for everyone having freedom and liberty in America.
Participants show patriotism in their own style giving the public a show.
“It’s really just celebrating our country and the different things we’ve done throughout history and what not,” Anna Warren expresses.
“The theme this year’s Independence Day parade is stronger together. while people celebrate the freedom of America they also celebrate the strength they have after COVID-19,” Cora Dickey reports.
The party continues popping with All-American fun for the family. Food and games fill the Veterans Memorial Park as people think of what celebrating this holiday means to them.
“For marching band, it’s just playing the music to create a good environment and atmosphere, especially for the Town of Palisade,” Anna Warren describes.
After fighting battles from the pandemic, the crowd takes time this holiday weekend to reflect on history while honoring the red, white, and blue.
