K&J – Plattsburgh’s 4th of July Parade

On the K&J Show today we’re helping to extend the holiday weekend and if you didn’t get enough of the Fourth of July over the weekend.. We decided to spend some time at the City Docks in Plattsburgh as floats in the fourth of July Parade were getting ready to make their way into downtown… Our first stop.. North Country Honor Flight and in and among this large contingent we found their director and asked him to tell us a little about the organization.. From there, we visit with many of the non profit floats as well as City Councilors and Mayor Jim Calnon..

We’ll talk to the National Guard, Center Stage, Battle of Plattsburgh Commemorators and many more.. and It seems like there wouldn’t be a parade without some sort of musical marching tribute and that’s the case in this event as well.. in fact, there’s a group of marching rollerbladers whose marching band was more of a last minute thing.. It’s an election year and we wouldn’t have much of a parade of some of our candidates weren’t lining up to hand out their wares… Karen Bisso is one of those candidates..
