Hpapy Independence Day! The Manchester by the Sea 2019 parade featured sports cars, vintage bikes, team floats, music floats, and militia and minutemen companies. Following the parade, parachute jumpers aimed for the X on the turf field.
Rockport’s Annual 4th of July bonfire is pretty special. We almost didn’t go this year. I’m glad we decided to stick with tradition and keep the party bus rolling.
Thank you to the firefighters who helped keep the towering flames in check to keep everyone safe!
Small dragon comes out of the outhouse. Becomes much bigger and rids Rockport of arm hair.

It’s always amazing to drive around town the morning of the Fish Town Horribles Parade and see all the empty chairs and decorations! All of these shots were taken with my iPhone while fighting through traffic to drop off stuff at our GMG party corner. So this one is for all those folks who are not home, or moved out of town, enjoy! Now stop by the GMG tent and party with us!!!
For all you proud Americans, this is another video I just completed for STIHL. I always enjoy working with everyone at this amazing company, but getting a chance to put Real-STIHL factory workers into this project was truly special. Even if you have never owned a chainsaw, or know what an American built STIHL product looks like, you’ll enjoy this! (click the gear on lower right for HD video)
