This is a big shout out to all our friends and neighbors in the Independence Avenue area of Middletown who may be wondering how all the flags appear, lining the street each July 4th.
Check out this video and see who’s been putting out the flags and having a great time doing it.
The flags have been springing up every July 4th morning making the neighborhood look festive and patriotic for at least the last ten years. After all what better street than one named Independence to get decorated on Independence Day. Columbia and Winchester Avenues get flags in front of each house too.
The people putting out the flags, are my 5 grandchildren and their friend Logan and me. My daughter Jennifer, mother of the grandchildren took the pictures. My wife Ellen was on hand driving the car keeping us supplied with flags.
My daughter said this has become a tradition. One that we and the neighborhood enjoy.
Happy 4th of July.
