Forks Old Fashioned Fourth of July begins

with Midnight Madness. Our main street, Forks Avenue, is blocked by our local police department.

We are then free to wander, looking at tables set up for various reasons - items for sale or raffles, shop the stores and indulge in food and goodies, and meet up with neighbors we just don't seem to see often enough. Though it was difficult to make our way through a couple of the stores, it was good to see so many people enjoying the "Madness".

For a tour of the street, hop on the Rayonier Express, sponsored by several of our local stores and Lunsford Real Estate.
This being the "Twilight" zone - a look-alike contest was held to benefit the local Relay for Life - Bella and Edward look-alikes were found and will be riding in Bella's truck in the parade tomorrow.

That's me as Bella =) I'm looking everywhere online for the pictures from the contest, because none of my friends brought a camera. Ha ha.
