Independence Day celebrations in Loudoun’s towns this year were more subdued than previous years.
Although most large public Independence Day events were canceled this year, Purcellville residents lined Main and Maple street to watch an all-vehicle parade.
Meanwhile in Middleburg, about 20 vehicles—which included multiple firetrucks and an early-20th-century police car with Uncle Sam at the lead—wrapped through the town’s western residential corridor before passing through the Salamander Resort property and ending on the south side of town. It took only about two minutes for the parade’s two dozen vehicles to pass by each location.
And in Sterling, a small Black Lives Matter march braved the heat to walk from the Paul Hencken Soccer Fields at Algonkian Regional Park to Potomac Baptist Church.
