The stars and stripes were out in force on the Fourth of July.

Huntington Beach hosted daylong activities starting with its annual parade and ending with fireworks on the beach.

Down the road was the Hermosa Beach Ironman, which consists of a milelong run on the beach, a milelong paddle in the ocean and multiple adult beverages immediately after getting out of the water.

Take a look.
