One of my favorite parts of the Fourth of July holiday celebration is driving up two hours North of Bemidji to my Mom's home town of Big Falls. They have a real small town celebration with kiddie races, beer in the street, lumberjack contests and a cute parade that goes one way down the street and then turns around and comes back down the other way.
My Mom and my Aunties. My uncle, grandpa and cousin were in town too.
