Flag Day Parade 2015
Ocean Shores, WA

June 13, 2015 ~ Ocean Shores honors Old Glory by holding its annual Flag Day Parade, one of the few parades left in the United States....patriotism still lives here. We have many retirees who are veterans living in Ocean Shores and they, as well as current Military and EMT. Parade watchers line Pt Brown Ave NW and W. Chance a La Mer Ave to watch the presentation of our Nation's Symbol by marching bands, drill teams, politicians, companies, non-profit organizations, and local clubs, citizens, and military personnel. There were 4 junior/senior high bands, including the North Beach Jr/Senior High Marching Band. The Grand Marshal was the 2014 Miss Washington Kailee Dunn riding in a classic convertible.

There were over 60 entries, including the McCleary Bear Festival float, and BOOM!....the Pirate Ship Black Rose. Playtime Family Fun Center featured their bumper cars. For the 3rd year, Ronald McDonald was in it. What would a classic American parade be without the classic and muscle cars?.....from the 1940's to the brand new Corvettes....these car owners revved their engines along the streets. There also were a few Mini Coopers from the local Mini Cooper club. Towards the end of the parade, local heroes were showcased, ie the Ocean Shores Fire and Police departments. And a great part of any parade is to watch the drill team dance performances.

Another feature were animals....dogs by North Beach Paws; the Grays Harbor Mounted Mounties presented by regal horses and their riders holding the American Flag.

See more pictures below to get a view of this fun time.
