Falmouth's bustling downtown was teeming with the stars and stripes as hundreds of families descended on the village today at 11am to celebrate America's birthday and their sense of community with the annual bike parade sponsored by the Falmouth Village Association.

Led by a police escort and joined by a foot-patrolling Police Chief Anthony Riello, kids from 1 to nearly 100 walked, biked, rolled and scooted from the village green to the Peg Noonan Park  as hundreds more watched and cheered in delight.

After the parade, families gathered on the library lawn to share a smile and goodwill.  On a day when we celebrate how average citizens and neighbors banded together 232 years ago to secure our freedom, this event reminds us of the power of community as average citizens and neighbors today gathered to celebrate each other.
