Tomorrow is a beary big day for us in the United States, it’s Independence Day, or as some people like to call it, the Fourth of July! Most people will celebrate by watching parades with friends and family, going to fairs or carnivals, barbequing, maybe going to the pool and then watching fireworks at night. I always watch our neighborhood parade with my family, and a lot of the people who live on the road that the parade goes down have parties at their house afterwards or they put up chairs and tables all over their yards like a theater. It’s kind of a big deal.
I think my favorite part of the parade is when the high school marching band comes by. I can’t wait to be in the marching band. I love hearing the marching drums from really far away, they’re so loud! I play piano right now, but obviously I can’t play the piano and march at the same time. So I will hopefully be learning flute, or maybe even piccolo! The piccolo is that tiny little flute-looking instrument. You hold it the same way as a flute, sideways, and my dad always says the piccolo gets the coolest part of the real marching songs. Plus, I feel like it probably wouldn’t be that much work to hold up and march with because it’s so tiny. So yeah, I think I’ll claim piccolo, when the time comes.
Happy 4th of July!
