The Pepper Drive parade kicks off in this video.
by Timothy Rutt
Altadena's longest (if not oldest) Fourth of July neighborhood parade runs along Pepper Drive, where more people are marching than cheering on. And that's OK, because everyone meets at the end for cookies, brownies, and some good old American lemonade. It's always a cavalcade of costumes and vehicles, and we captured a few after the jump.
1. This unicycle was just one of the unusual vehicles traveling Pepper Drive.
2. You can't see it in the picture, but the pinwheels on Diane Schroeder's head were spinning so fast she was threatening to go airborne.
3. Even the dogs were feeling the patriotic spirit.
4. The marching band set the pace.
5. There was even a float.
6. Barbara Naimark, left, and David Lerman were geared up for the holiday.
7. After the parade, the neighborhood gathered for lemonade and cookies to celebrate the holiday and the neighborhood.
8. Liza Pattison's Fourth of July boots were made for walking.
