Expanded gallery (21 pictures) from the Cave Spring Independence Day Parade.

This is how you celebrate the nation’s 243rd birthday — with a Norman Rockwell-like Independence Day parade in Cave Spring.

 

This is a scene from the patriotic music performance at Cave Spring Baptist Church last Sunday evening.
LaRae Martin, left, wears the “vote dress,” customarily worn by the ‘grand marshal’ of the Cave Spring Independence Day parade. She’s pictured with Christa Jackson, who founded the parade more than three decades ago. The “vote dress” was designed by Christa’s mother during Jimmy Carter’s 1976 bid for the presidency.
