A full day of Fourth of July festivities kicks off with Ft. Thomas Parade

With pickups and bands, the Fourth of July parade made its way across Main Street in Fort Thomas, and the parade of politicians and patriots was closely followed by cruisers and Chevrolets, with kids of all ages chasing candy and waving flags. Parsons has had her share of holiday candy. “My favorite part has to be getting the candy. It can last for months, maybe even a year,” Parsons said. “It’s like a tradition on the fourth or second or whatever day they have,” Crowthers said. It’s always a good time.” A casual measure of summer, apple pie, and mom—it’s simply all-American in this all-American city. The weather can’t dampen the patriotic spirit, Crowthers says. ‘It seems like Americans bring everyone together whether it’s raining or Sunlight or something else. There will always be someone who will be here to watch the show. Everyone together,” Crowthers said. While some will tell you that the big show happens when the sun goes down, and the sky lights up with the red glow of the rockets, others like Riley say this walk down Main Street suits them just fine. “Lots of people volunteer and I really like it,” Parsons said. Because people care about the United States, the Declaration and independence and it’s okay – God bless America.”

The Fort Thomas Parade is one of the highlights of Northern Kentucky – something that is hard to do with a neighboring town called Independence.

Longtime resident Scott Crowthers has attended for years.

“It’s like a tradition on the fourth or second or whatever day they have. It’s always a good time,” Crowthers said.

This parade of which we are so proud has been part of the Fort Thomas Independence celebrations for as long as anyone can remember.

Like a casual measure of summer, apple pie, and mom – it’s simply all-American in this all-American city.

Crowthers says the weather can’t dampen the patriotic spirit.

“It seems like it’s Americans to get everyone together whether it’s raining or shining or whatever. There’s always someone going to be here to watch the show. Everyone together,” Crowthers said.

While some will tell you that the big show happens when the sun goes down, and the sky lights up with the red glow of the rockets, others like Riley say this walk down Main Street suits them perfectly.

“Lots of people volunteer and I really like it because people care about the United States, the Declaration and Independence, and God bless America,” Parsons said.
