We have stayed in Mammoth several times for the 4th of July. This time we are not right in Mammoth but took the 9 mile drive into town to watch the parade. Before that we again when to the annual Pancake Breakfast put on by the local Lion's Club. Lots of locals there and as we have been coming to Mammoth for over 30 years, we felt at home. After having pancakes with sausage and orange juice(already had our morning coffee), we went back to the car and got our sand chairs and set them up in a shady spot by the side of the road. As the parade doesn't start until 11, we walked over to the arts and craft fair over in the Footloose Sports Store and did some browsing.
There was lots of candy thrown to the crowds. The little girl on the right in yellow and pink had a blue and red bag that was as full as a Halloween night by the end of the parade.
