Pine Valley pulled it off again, and with what was rumored to be only two months of planning, some said, the parade this year was better than ever.  Pine Valley kicked off their annual Pine Valley Days, beginning on Friday night with music in the park creating a festival atmosphere.  Then on Saturday morning the big event began rolling down Pine Boulevard.

Pine Valley pulled it off again, and with what was rumored to be only two months of planning, some said, the parade this year was better than ever.  Pine Valley kicked off their annual Pine Valley Days, beginning on Friday night with music in the park creating a festival atmosphere.  Then on Saturday morning the big event began rolling down Pine Boulevard.
The Victorian Roses showed up on horseback, elegantly strutting their stuff, as did the Outlaws.  The clowns added brevity to the promenade, on mini bikes and on foot.  The tractors and vintage cars took onlookers back to a time when computers and cell phones were not the most important part of life.
Grand Marshall Judy Inskeep, keeping it patriotic, was dressed in red white and blue, and enjoying herself greatly as she motored down the boulevard.  The Cameron Highlanders marched with dignity as their bagpipes wailed wonderfully, making one yearn for the Scottish Highlands.
Senator Anderson marched, followed by a full court of royal Princesses waving from convertables.  Also, the big band sounds of the Mount Miguel Alumni band showed up decked out in their red and black.
What would a parade be without Shriners in little cars? Or the Border Patrol on Horseback?  The tall tractor built by Curtis Schlumburger represented Sharlee’s Hair Barn.  This year their was a new treat in the way of Chinese Dragons colorfully colliding with spectators in a cute and friendly way, allowing a friendly pat or scratch on the head, much like one would greet an affectionate pet.
After the parade, the park had a fun festival, complete with vendors and offerings that one can only acquire from local artisans.
