Flag Day Parade 2011
Ocean Shores, WA

June 11, 2011 ~ Ocean Shores honors Old Glory by holding its annual Flag Day Parade. It is fun to see all of the people line Pt Brown Ave and W. Chance a La Mer Ave to watch the presentation of our Nation's Symbol by marching bands, politicians, companies, non-profit organizations, and local clubs and citizens. The parade began with the United States Lewis-McChord Airforce Base flag bearers and their marching band. There were over 40 entries, including the very partiotic Twin Star Credit Union Liberty float, the Ocean Shores Chamber of Commerce, the Habitat for Humaninty Float, the Spananway Juinior High marching band, and many more. What would a classic American parade without the classic and muscle cars.....from the early 1930's to the brand new Corvettes....these car owners revved their engines along the streets. The most impressive show was the traditional entry and most notable of all of the floats....the Pirate Ships. The parade ended with showcase of local heroes...police, fire and EMT workers and their vehicles. See the pictures below of the fun time. Also, the Cutting Edge Kites put on their traditional kite flying show at the Chance a La Mer beach approach.
