Cedar City has the most patriotic 4th of July Parade of anywhere we have lived (including DC!). They had floats dedicated to the founding of our nation, highlighting the key events.
To make it even better, all of our children participated.
Carson held a banner for 'Lexington and Concord' which re-enactors dressed as Americans and Red Coats.
Tucker and Savannah were part of the Constitution float and they passed out copies of the Constitution to the crowd.
Following the parade was a party at the park followed by fireworks that night.
Yes, the Betsy Ross flag is still patriotic in Cedar City.

Watching the city fireworks.
This huge explosion was startling. We figured there was a big accident with the fireworks. We later found out that it is Cedar City tradition to blow up a propane tank after the fireworks.
