Growing up there was one neighborhood I lived in where the block did things together, like have a 4th of July bicycle parade.  As kids, we looked forward to it every year and had SO much fun decorating our bicycles for the block parade.

I found this bicycle with flag decorations from and it brought back a flood of fun neighborhood memory traditions that I hope I can carry on with my children.
