Sadly with the pandemic still making large gatherings dangerous, Cabin John’s long-standing 4th of July parade and festivities will be on hiatus this year.
But that doesn’t mean the community can’t show its patriotism in other ways. Thanks to John and Annmarie Allen of 81st St., who have been on community flag duty for the last six years, MacArthur Blvd. will be sporting the Red, White, and Blue per usual.
Now we ask that the community go big with your patriotic décor. Get out your bunting, flags, balloons, and t-shirts. Decorate your home, your car, your bike, and yourself! Feel free to make chalk drawings in celebration of our nation’s 244th birthday.
On this Independence Day, as you stroll the streets of Cabin John amidst the patriotic colors and paraphernalia, remember all that has made the U.S.A. great over these past two and a half centuries and know that we can help carry our country through these troubled times.
