Happy 4th of July from the Cape.
The Independence Day Bike and Carriage Parade in Falmouth Village was an enjoyable event for one and all.
It began at 10:00 AM . The staging for the parade took place in the Saint Barnabas Church parking lot and ended at the Mullen Hall school playground.
George Sykes of the Corner Cycle Shop lead the way on his antique velocipede. He was followed by Mike Kasperian as Uncle Sam. Then came the children of all ages and sizes. They came with there bicycles. tricycles, wagons, strollers, cooters and carriages. Each one was decorated in red, white and blue by its owner.
The parade proceeded down Main Street then took a left turn onto Shore Street, across Katherine Lee Bates Road and into the playground. At the playground, gifts, prizes and snacks were handed out. The parade is sponsored each year by the Falmouth Elks Lodge.
