PHOTOS: Chuck's Fort Thomas Fourth of July Day Celebration (2016)

Yes, we celebrate our independence with parades and fireworks but we also celebrate the residents of Fort Thomas and we throw a nice Independence Day parade.  Here are a few before, during, and after photos that tell the story of our Independence Day parade held on July 2.
