Balloons bring out the kids in most of us.
They are festive and colorful.
A couple of big balloons, (and I mean BIG), in a Fourth of July parade in western Massachusetts sure delighted the crowds.
There was a 40 -foot panda bear you'd never want to meet alone in an alley.
Abby Cadabby, of Sesame Street fame, with her infectious smile, made big people as well as little people giggle.
There were great big red, white and blue star balloons, too.
Of course, there was an American flag to bring out patriotism!
So these are the very last of 2016 July Fourth photos on this blog.
Hope you enjoyed them.
DID YOU SEE A PARADE THIS YEAR?
