Charlotte, N.C . — A strong military presence was in evidence at a fourth of July street party within walking distance of the Charlotte convention centre. Soldiers wait in the foreground to show their hardware to passersby. An inflatable play structure in the shape of a tank for children, complete with a large gun, was a part of the festivities. Teenagers in military garb helped young kids in and out of the inflatable ‘toy’. The gun flapped up and down as children jumped inside – war as fun.
