Flag Day Parade 2008
Ocean Shores, WA

June 14, 2008 ~ Ocean Shores honors Old Glory by holding its annual Flag Day Parade with the 2008 Miss Washington Elyse Umemoto as the Grand Marshal. This year had over 50 entries. Two of the most enjoyable, and classic parts of any parade, were the marching bands. They traveled all the way from Everett (Explorer Middle School) and Tillicum (Tillicum Middle School) to entertain us and they displayed their great talent. Some of the notable floats were the Pirate Ships and their Crews, the Rock-n-Roll float playing music from Elvis Presley, and the Habitat for Humanity float, which has a great presence in this County. The more whimsical entries were the miniature/carnival airplane, the dune buggies, and the bumber car with four Flags flying. What would a parade be without the showcase of America's passion and inovation ~ cars! Rows of Corvettes, PT Cruisers and Classic Cars, such as a 1940's Packard, were displayed and their engines revved.
Also a site to see was the Kite Challenge, which took place on the beach in downtown Ocean Shores.
