Safety Harbor 4th of July Car Parade: Short, Sweet, Photos

in events/news/photos/town square

It lasted less than a half hour but it showed spirit. Instead of the annual parade down Main Street that lasted hours, a car parade went through town Saturday morning.

Mayor Joe Ayoub and Safety Harbor Commissioners Carlos Diaz and Nancy Besore were in the parade.

They arrived late but the Stars Wars Legion came to town for the parade.

Thanks to American Legion Post 238 for setting up the Car Parade.

The marching Santas from Palm Harbor were riding.

What’s a Safety Harbor parade without motorcycles?

Next year maybe we can get back to the full-blown 4th of July parade down Main Street,
