4th of July Parade, Grossman's Seafood, Subfest
Happy Fourth of July! This morning was the Groton Fourth of July Parade… my first parade as Miss Connecticut! I met my driver, FX (from the American Legion), as he pulled up in his beautiful, yellow convertible truck. He was great company and his truck was a hit! It was a perfect, sunny day and the parade was a lot of fun.. I was able to meet many new friends in Groton!
After the parade I stopped by Grossman’s Seafood to meet Sean and Christian. We talked about their company and their passion in supporting the troops. I look forward to seeing them again soon and preparing for Operation Lobster Dinner in a couple of weeks!
Our last stop was Subfest. This was a carnival/festival open to the community at the Groton Naval Base. I had a lot of fun walking around for a few hours, talking to many of our service men, meeting many people in the community, signing autograph cards, and even going on a few rides with my new friend Brendan!
What a great way to spend the 4th!
