The town I live in holds a big festival on the 4th of July for Independence day. While it was in the mid 90's today the heat did not stop a lot of people from attending the event. The parade through town runs about 2-hours in the morning. The rest of the afternoon street vendors are setup on main street and bands play for entertainment. Later tonight will be the fireworks. I have attended in my American Heritage tartan kilt for the past three years. This is the first year I have spotted someone else in a kilt. A young man wearing a black Utilikilt. I have run across others that said they had a kilt but I guess none were brave enough to wear it. One young girl as me if I was hot. Well, I guess if I had been in a traditional wool kilt that may have been the case but I had on a lighter weight PV kilt from USAKilts. In the winter they will be asking if I am cold. You can't win. For those of you in the USA have a safe Independence Day.
