For politically incorrect silliness with small-town charm, the annual Round Pond Fourth of July Parade is not to be missed. It kicks off at noon and is the stuff of legends. You never know what politician or celebrity is going to be lampooned, and you can always count on the Tacky Tourists to put on a kitschy dance routine with their lawn chairs. Plus, you’ll be in the delightful midcoast town of Round Pond, home to the Granite Hall Store with all of its penny candy and Muscongus Bay Lobster.
