Fourth of July Bike Parade

It's been a long time since the kids of Greenbrier decorated their bikes for the Fourth of July bike parade that ran through the neighborhood. In the book, Last Hand: A Suburban Memoir of Cards and the Cold War Era, I describe my family’s involvement in the 1973 bike parade. While looking for some references of the bike parade, I came across this footage of the 1964 Greenbrier Fourth of July bike parade which was filmed before the subdivision’s completion. I hope you enjoy it.
