I spent Independence day in Philadelpia and joined the city's Independence Day parade through the historic part of the city. Philadelpia, the second capitol of the United States, celebrates its birth with a patriotic salute! Music, speeches and reading of excerpts from the Declaration of Independence paid tribute to the history of the USA. There were almost 100 groups participated in the Independence Day parade.
An opening ceremony before the parade was held in front of the Independence Hall
located at Franklin Square Park.
People gathered there at the park to witness the ceremony.
Many of them were tourists like me and Larry.
