A bounce house facility in north central Florida celebrated Independence Day with a parade that involved lots of costumes and pageantry.

Parents and their children attended an Independence Day parade in the parking lot at Bouncers on 34th street in Gainesville.

About 40 people attended riding their scooters and bikes while others walked.

Amber Hartley, a mother from Starke, dressed as “Rosie the Riveter" and attended the parade with her two children and her niece.

The children were dressed as Lady Liberty, a soldier, and an American fairy.

“I try to teach my children to be patriotic,” Hartley said. “We talked about our country and how we're so grateful to live in the greatest country and she got a little lesson on the statue of liberty so that was fun.”

After the parade, everyone cooled off with a snow cone.

“Every holiday we love to do something for the community to get the community involved,” said Angela Adams, the parade organizer. “The Fourth of July is a great way for everyone to get dressed up and show their patriotism and just to get together and have fun before the fireworks."
