There are many things to love about the Fourth of July. Summer is hitting its stride. We're celebrating freedom with hot dogs and ice cream. Um, sparklers? But, if you're a parent, you know there is another perk -- patriotic holiday outfits! Stars and stripes on giant hats, beach babies in red, white and blue... Yes, you may be looking at a long night when everyone gets to stay up past bedtime and eat copious amounts of sugar, but there will be cuteness. Which is why, in honor of all this Fourth style, we bring you the first annual HuffPost Parents Independence Day Parade. Join us by saying hello to a few adorable kids below, then show off your little patriot by adding a photo to the slideshow.
HuffPost Parents offers a daily dose of personal stories, helpful advice and comedic takes on what it’s like to raise kids today. Learn more
