I love these vintage Fourth of July postcards. Their bright colors and total disregard for the safety of children is amazing! Though I have to admit, riding on a rocket like this young fellow, seems like it might be great fun.
When I was a little girl, I can remember sitting on Daddy's shoulders watching fireworks. We would go to the Alpenrose Dairy every Fourth of July. It was a grand tradition for years and years.
These days there's a fabulous parade which goes right past my place, as well fireworks over the river only four blocks away. We have a big potluck that day and lots of folks come to sit and watch the parade.
The Fourth of July is one of my favorite holidays. It nearly rivals Christmas!
Have a wonderful weekend, wherever you are, dear Friends! Happy Postcard Friendship Friday!
