Couldn't make it to the 4th of July Parade in Laurel, MT?

Don't worry. We were there with our (very unprofessional) camera skills to capture photos of every entry for the 2024 parade. My kid and her boyfriend arrived early for the pancake breakfast in the nearby park, and scored us a perfect parade vantage point on a pile of rocks in front of the liquor store.

By 10:30 am, thousands began lining the streets of Main, First Ave, and various sidestreets in Laurel for the annual 4th of July parade. It's one of many festivities happening during the town's largest gathering of the year.

The street dance at the Palace was a packed house on Wednesday night, with the Repeat Offenders drawing an energetic crowd. The party is a fundraiser for the Laurel Dodgers.

We're off to enjoy the fireworks, food trucks, and good times at Thompson Park. See ya' around dusk for one of the best fireworks shows in the state.
