I had the pleasure of attending the 2021 4th of July parade in River Hill this morning. I took a lot of photos for readers that could not make it out to the parade. I hope you enjoy them all…here are a few:

This parade almost always brings out elected officials and candidates running for office…here are a few of those images:

Calvin Ball (Howard County Executive):


Deb Jung (Howard County Councilmember in District 4)

Katie Hester (State Senator in District 9)

Jen Terrasa and Vanessa Atterbeary (Delegates in District 13)

Chao Wu (Howard County Board of Education member)

Brooke Lierman (Delegate in District 46 and candidate for Maryland Comptroller) 

Robin Ficker (candidate for Governor in Maryland)

John King (candidate for Governor in Maryland)

Since I am mentioning politics a bit…here was an interesting sign that some had (from the Howard County Republican Club) at the parade:

I wonder now if Allan Kittleman is considering getting into this race in 2022 or if this is just wishful thinking from the HoCo GOP? Hmm…something to watch for a little while.

There are more than 250 photos in the album from the parade this morning. You can view them here:

I had a great time seeing so many people I had not seen in over a year. It felt nice kind of getting back to normal.

As you can see I will still come back to Howard County to cover events for the blog readers (for those that were wondering).

Everyone enjoy the long weekend. Happy 4th of July!!!
