I had an opportunity to go watch a 4th of July Parades in a town call ‘Mendocino‘ , a lovely small town in South Californian where I am staying. The parades is definitely interested and different for me it was funny and enjoyable, after the parades everyone was drinking and when went to a hours party or BBQ which I was one of them that went to house BBQ.
