Morning showers weren't enough to keep Burlington residents from coming out to celebrate freedom during the town's Fourth of July Celebration.
The day's events were organized by the Burlington Breakfast Rotary Club and featured a morning parade followed by fun activities on the Town Commons.
The featured unit was the world championship "Stuart Highlanders Pipe Band" which placed first in international competition earlier this year in Switzerland. A new attraction will be "The Mad Bavarian Band" from Lebanon, NH. They ever-popular "Hurdy Gurdy Man" Jim Bryant came down all the way from Wayne, Maine.
The fun on the Commons included free pony rides, bouncy houses, and a 4-car train to ride as well as the ever-popular competitive Dog Show.
Check out our pictures of the parade (dog show pics to come shortly) and see the participants march in celebration of the 4th.
Also, add you own pictures to this community gallery by clicking the 'add pictures' button. We would love pictures of the parade, the celebration, people and children wearing patriotic clothes or waving flags or even pictures of your home gatherings. Anything 4th of July is welcome!
