This is Independence Day weekend in the United State. Our republic is marking 234 years as an independent nation. This morning I went to downtown Arlington, Texas, to watch their parade.
Arlington is in Tarrant County, halfway between Dallas and Fort Worth. Population is more than 330,000. Arlington is the home of Texas Rangers baseball and Dallas Cowboys football teams. Since 1961, Six Flags of Texas, also in Arlington, has been the best known amusement park in the Lone Star State.
