Yankee Doodle Dandy
Put together an easy picnic to enjoy after the parade. Buy American flag toothpicks to hold sandwich slices together and for decorating cupcakes--plus you can wave them at the parade!
Pack up some plastic cups, a thermos of lemonade, and a bag of snacks for the firework displays. Don't forget a blanket or low lawn chairs--and mosquito repellent can save the evening.
