Red, White and Blue rolled out on parade Wednesday morning, July 4, decorating kid’s bicycles, wagons, hats, clothes, wagons, faces (and did we mention wagons) and, in one case, from a huge flag over the Post Road, for Darien’s annual Push-n-Pull children’s parade.

The rules every year are simple: Decorate as you please, roll your vehicle down the street behind the band, the marching officials and the veterans with flags, but introduce no motors into the procession.
