Huntington Beach has the biggest 4th of July celebration this side of the Mississippi…It is legendary and people come from far and wide…Being on the Main Street right near the beach…Island Cowgirl has a front row seat to all of the shenanigans.
Over 500,000 people descend upon or tiny beachside town…and the preparations begin weeks before…
One of the favorite local pastimes is decorating your house…to the extreme…
Or if you do not happen to have a house to properly decorate…you may feel free to decorate yourself.
Or your children….
Or your dog…
And if you are very, very lucky you will find these outside your house, in the middle of the street the next morning…of course there is very little sleep and a whole lot of hoopla.
Just what July 4th should be…a big birthday party for the good old U.S of A.
