Viewfinder: Perfect Day for Annual Fourth of July Parade

Clear skies and a bright sun greeted thousands of people who packed the streets this morning for the Clawson Fourth of July Parade.

The 2011 Clawson Fourth of July parade marched through the streets in beautiful weather as thousands of spectators looked on.

People turned out in droves, lining 14 Mile, Main Street and Elmwood, cheering on friends, family, politicians, sports teams, local businesses and everyone else as they passed by in the parade.

From classic cars to a female Uncle Sam on stilts to a Back to the Future float, this year's parade was quite the success.

Check out these photos if you missed the morning event.

Not One fly over, but 3, does that make up for your picture not being in the QUE? the 3 fly overs were they to make up for the Years they could find us? and we had none?

Yes, you are right. I was having some camera malfunctions and many of my photos (unfortunately) didn't come out well. I wish I could have included a well-shot image for every float and person that came by, but I did what I could with what was publishable. We at Patch have a nice relationship with the American Legion and I personally have interviewed and taken photos of many of you in the past and we in no way meant to disclude the Legion as we have a great respect for the organization and it's place in our community.
