July 4th Old Fashioned Celebration

Those of you who have been in Grand Marais over the July 4th holiday know that it is an old fashioned celebration.  Although I did receive some grief, I did not wear the 1895 bear coat and participate.  I was hired to teach an agate class in the morning and with everything else going on -- it was not a priority.  I did walk around and document the parade as well as the fireworks.  Rather than post the photos over multiple days:  I am posting them all today.  This week will be very busy as I have to make mineral art for the Moose Lake Agate Days Show coming up this next weekend.  I am still going to try to complete the agate hunting DVD, but first I have to make sure I have enough art.  I need around another ten hours to finish the DVD, so I'll give it an attempt.  If I don't squeeze in the time, then I'll finish it after I get back from Minnesota.

Enjoy the July 4th photos.

Lining up for the parade....

Instead of throwing out candy or beads -- one group was throwing water balloons.

The start of the parade...

While walking over to the fireworks, I spotted these huge irises.

Waiting for it to get dark.

The show...
