MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The 59th annual 4th of July parade on Key Biscayne was celebrated by foot, by horse, by fire truck, and classic car.
It’s one reason why local Juan Carlos Diaz Padron calls it a favorite saying, “It’s the one day we come out and celebrate our nation and celebrate our community and we are all here, horses, cars family.”
Even former Miami Beach Mayor Phillip Levine knows this is the place to be.
“Really Fourth of July is great everywhere across the country. Key Biscayne happens to one of the most special unique parades and its fun because I think key Biscayne kind of respresents a little bit like small-town America.”
Every group was represented in the parade even the littlest of Big or small, red or blue. American pride was one thing undoubtedly on display.
Former mayor Levine summed up the day perfectly saying, “I think what’s so fun about it is that today is one of those days where you’re not republican your not Democrat your not independent you’re just an American and your celebrating America”
