Bothell's Freedom Festival and Fourth of July parade attracted thousands of people. The weather held up, and floats, bands, kids on bicycles, Seafair Pirates, and numerous cars, trucks, and walkers made their way down Main Street.
American flags dominated the parade with this year's theme, "It's a Grand Old Flag." A free street dance with Cheryl Arnold and the Blue Mariah Band featured a Conga line.
