Our 4th of July started with an early morning CrossFit workout followed by the traditional Bend Pet Parade. Since we post photos of this event every year, we're only adding a few of our favorites.
Of course we have to have a photo of a pet penguin...even if it is stuffed.
After the Pet Parade, Dave did the Bend Freedom Ride with friends Norman and Dave White. This ride consists of close to 1,000 people riding from Pioneer Park, through downtown Bend and ending at Columbia Park. It's a crazy, colorful event that stops traffic and is either hated or loved by the locals.

After the Freedom Ride we made our annual visit to 10 Barrel Brewery. Here's Dave White, Kelly & Norman.
From 10 Barrel we ended up at the Riverside Market.
A woman with these shoes at the Riverside was our favorite fashion statement of the day.
