Huntington Beach has California's largest 4th of July parade -- along Pacific Coast Highway (Rte. 1), through downtown, and up Main Street past City Hall. Many houses along the route are decorated for the occasion. I just happened to photograph a couple of them today prior to seeing the new challenge.

Great shots, Walter. I especially like the second. That pinwheel really stands out against a colorful background.

Thanks, Cal. And, a correction. I read today that the local parade is the largest one west of the Mississippi.

Looks very festive and a fun place to be. Like Cal, I like the second image with the pinwheel.
