Homewood's 2012 Fourth of July Parade
Despite the heat, hundreds turned out for Wednesday's parade along Ridge Road.
Families lined Ridge Road in Homewood for the annual Fourth of July Parade Wednesday, July 4.
Picking a spot along the curb with blankets and lawn chairs -- or just setting up camp in the shade of the tree on a sidewalk -- viewers claimed their perches as early as 45 minutes before the 11 a.m. parade began.
Jeff and Jessica Cook live in Oak Forest but Jessica is from Homewood. It's become a family tradition for her to bring her own family, which includes 6-year-old Emma and 2-year-old Sophie, back home to watch the festivities.
"We do it every year," she said.
