Happy Fourth of July to all my readers! My little town of about 2800 people swells to about 40,000 this week. we have the biggest " 4th"  parade in the state. Its really fun. We have a craft fair, food vendors. a 5k, art gallery shows, constant music on the waterfront stage... I could go on, but I will give you a few pictures.

Well, you get the idea~
There is also a naturalization ceremony, where yesterday, 117 people from 52 countries became citizens of the good ole USA!! A classic car show was also fun.

For me- this was the highlight of this years Fourth...

Josh Duhamel and Fergie are in my little town!! He is here to film the Nicholas Sparks book Safehaven. Its set in Southport, and is being filmed here. He plays the male lead, and Julianne Hough plays the female lead. Its exciting to say the least!
After the fireworks tonite, they came out of a little restaurant we were sitting near. Some people went  - ok ran- over to say hello. I was one of them. They were friendly and said Hi and waved. Josh even said a few words to us. I Fergie sat on a motorcycle that was all done up for the holiday. I took her picture, but it was pretty blurry, as everything happened rather quickly, and my flash wasnt on, but here it is.

She is right in the middle, with her back to me. Her husband Josh , is standing behind the guy in the patiotic hat. Fun!!! Hope you also enjoyed your day~
Many thanks for stopping by...

Living vicariously through my friend's 4th of July experience! Looks like fun! Sorry I missed it-particularly the craft show! : (
I did attempt fireworks-on the widow's walk...not smart---not smart at all. The patient should have been hog-tied to her bed...or more heavily sedated...
