Conroe 4th of July Parade “It’s a Grand Old Flag”

4th of July Parade “It’s a Grand Old Flag”

Every year at Walden, on Lake Conroe, they host a “4th of July” parade that is so much fun for every age.

Families decorate their vehicles, golf carts, bicycles, mopeds, roller blades and even themselves!  The parade winds its way through Walden and ends with a party and prizes at the Yacht Club.

My mother-in-law worked for a few weeks on their float, the theme was “It’s a Grand Old Flag”

and they won … WINNER!

She puts so much work into this and I was so proud of her for being recognized.

“Miss Pippa … Where do you find all these fun clothes?”

 “Miss Pippa … Where do you find all these fun clothes?”

I have heard this comment over and over from my kids friends lately.   They want a sequins flag vest for 4th of July and where can they find them?  But of course at a thrift store!   I am not even sure if they sell these is a regular retail store???????  (have you seen them?)

I try to shop off season, for everything!  This men’s polo shirt was $1 at a New Years Thrift Store Clearance Sale, the red & white gingham check shirt was also $1 at that sale.  The red, white & blue sequins vest was $4.99, found this past spring, at a Thrift Store!
