Fourth of July in Skagway is always a good time. The city puts on a great fireworks show over the Lynn canal and on the morning of the Fourth the annual parade marches up and down Broadway. Tourists, seasonal workers, townsfolk, and even Canadians all line the street to watch the floats go by and dive after free candy.
This year I'll be celebrating with family after so many years away. Francie is too young to enjoy popsicles and burgers and too scared of loud noises to appreciate the beauty of fireworks but I'm so happy that we'll be here in the states for her first Fourth of July.
