[Flags for the Fourth in Irondequoit]
Only one of the 4,000 flags.
Talk about American pride.

An Irondequoit family is sharing the red, white and blue this Fourth of July with their neighbors. Harlan, Austin and Alexis Furbush loaded up their wagon and wheeled around town Tuesday morning. They placed American flags on the front lawns of 4,000 homes.

They've lived in West Irondequoit for seven years. They wanted to make sure the town rang in the holiday with plenty of spirit.

"It's just a lot of fun and it has given us a chance to meet the neighbors and the kids made some new friends yesterday," said Harlan. "We did about 1,100-1,200 yesterday. I hope it brings out a little bit of pride in the neighborhoods. They're really nice neighborhoods; they have a lot of character."

Residents are encouraged to fly their flags through the holiday. The town of Irondequoit continues holiday events Tuesday with arts and crafts.

And on Wednesday there's a morning parade and fireworks display after dark.
