Jeff Kurkjian went to the Skippack July 4th Parade for the first time and it could be argued that it’s the cutest small town parade you’ve ever seen! He lives in Skippack, PA with his wife (pregnant with their first baby) and their dog, Pirate.

And I’m proud to be an AmericanWhere at least I know I’m freeAnd I won’t forget the men who diedWho gave that right to meAnd I’d gladly stand up next to youAnd defend Her still today‘Cause there ain’t no doubtI love this landGod Bless the U.S.A.

America celebrates its 247th birthday

And we got to be together for it. Our great country was founded on July 4th, 1776, right here in the great city of Philadelphia. The Declaration of Independence was signed this day 247 years ago. It declared our independence from England and, in affect, started the Revolutionary War.

Small town July 4th parade

So where is this small town parade that Jeff and Emily went to? They live in Skippack, Pennsylvania. For those wondering, it borders Collegeville, same exit off the turnpike as Lansdale, just on the other side of 476. Does that help you pin point it a bit?
