The Fourth of July stared out hot and spicy in one New Mexico village.

What better way to start off a Fourth of July parade in New Mexico than with a delicious breakfast burrito.

The crowds lined the streets of Corrales this morning with their American flags. Wearing USA's colors, of red white and blue.

As they waited for the parade to start kids pulled out their poppers, and had some fun.

"For us its coming together to celebrate our freedom with our friends and family most of us grew up here and so we just come every year to hang out and have a good time," said Beau Hill.

Musical groups walked the street giving parade watchers something to dance to.

As the parade heated up, so did the people, but there were vendors on hand to keep them cool.

Uncle Sam made an appearance.

The Sandoval County Sheriff's Department was there and so was the Corrales Fire Department, but the eager kids were more interested in a parade tradition. Candy.
