Independence, Takoma style 2010

There’s nothing quite like the Takoma Park 4th of July parade.
OK, there are marching bands, steel drums, Caribbean and Bolivian dancers, musicians and politicians but also the choreographed reel mowers, a Tea Party complete with Mad Hatter, AcroAirs gymnasts throwing young women into the air, astonishing jumpropers and elementary school activists convincing politicians to oppose styrofoam trays.
