Here's to the American spirit and celebration of 4th of July.....
Uncle Sam appears on bike to greet the crowds.
Santa Monica is a beloved community, with loads eco -cars and a bent for planting gardens and buying local. Boyscouts, Brownie troops, Meals-on-Wheels, torreadors and sega-driving mayors were all part of the mix.
Young, old, dogs and good humor was all a part of today's festivities.
