July 3rd Independence Day Parade in Montpelier
We hope you are enjoying the beautiful summer of Vermont. We at the JASV participated in the July 3rd Independence Day Parade in Montpelier. Like last year, the weather was very beautiful. This year was special!!! 5 beautiful ladies wore beautiful Yukata and marched through the audience of 20,000 along the road. We noticed that a group of little girls clapped loudly saying, "Wow, Kimono"
