Hundreds of people came out for a Southport Fourth of July Tradition – the annual Pequot Library Bike Parade.
Bikes, scooters and wagons that were fully decked out paraded down the street, ending at the library’s great lawn. Participants weren’t going to let some rainy weather stop them.
“It was pretty down pouring, so I just stayed under the tree,” says Brodie Vail.
“The clouds came in, people still poured in for this event,” says Jane Manners, children’s librarian at the Pequot Library.
The library has been hosting the event for decades, and for many, it's a tradition they love growing up with.
"I do this every year and it is always super fun, so shout out to the people at the library for having a really fun bike parade,” says Bradley Fish.
The event featured a parade, food, music and even a hula-hoop contest.
