Privateers lead July 4 parade

The Anna Maria Island Privateers lead their own July 4 parade from Bradenton Beach to Holmes Beach to Anna Maria.

The Islander’s Toni Lyon pairs up with Lisa Williams of MoonRacer No Kill Rescue to throw the weekly newspaper and candy to the enthusiastic crowd on the parade route. Williams said crowds of people would “applaud and cheer the newspaper. It was the most fun ever.”


Melissa Root of Bradenton and Warren, R.I., captured and shared the photo of these “American beauties,” in the July 4 parade.


If the most American flags got a prize in the July 4 parade, this family effort is the winner.
