Are you heading to the parade this morning? The parade kicks off at 10 am downtown Grand Junction on Main and the parade route will be between 9th and 1st streets. If you need parking you can park on the side street or the parking garage on 4th. The city doesn't allow pets so you might want to leave them home.

I love seeing all the different people in their cool outfits and taking pictures. I think Colorado is one of the more patriotic states I have lived in. I have the cutest pair of red white and blue shorts that I will be sporting today. How will you show your patriotism today? Manufactures make everything from boots, hats, swimming suits all honoring our country. If you have something really cool would love to see it. After the parade this morning I plan to hit some shops then head home for a little bbq in my back yard.
