It is hard to believe that our country today is less than 250 years old. At Dream Vacation Travels we talk about turning "Travel Dreams into Lifetime Memories". Today as I get ready to travel to Bristol, Rhode Island to view the oldest 4th of July Parade in the United States, it brings back memories of my childhood and the parades I participated in. As a three year old I would get up early every morning and my mom would turn on the radio to "march time", 15 minutes of John Phillips Souza marches. I would pick up a flag and parade in circles around the kitchen. I didn't realize how during my life I would become addicted to parades. At age 6 my father took me on my first airline flight to my aunts in Philadelphia to view the "Mummers Day Parade". How I remember to this day all the string bands and the excitement of children, including me, watching the bands go by. As I grew up if there was a parade nearby I would be sure to travel to see it. In High School I joined a band and when playing a tuba did not work, I took up the drums and marched at all the football games. In college at Northeastern I continued to march and made several lifelong friends who were members of the band. Yes today is the 4th of July in Bristol and it will no doubt bring back more memories.
