The great weather continues for Fairadise! We had a great parade Sunday, July 30th through the streets of Washington. A big crowd watched along the route, and over 300 viewed our live-stream on YouTube (if you missed it, watch the saved version here)! There were nearly 100 entries, and the floats looked fantastic! Grand Marshal was Jim Briggs (who road on the Wells Fargo Stage Coach), and the Honor Group was the City of Washington (riding on a tram decorated by Hillermann Nursery & Florist). Special thanks to our parade sponsors, John & Rita Griesheimer, and Pepsi-Cola Bottling Co. of New Haven. The parade video was sponsored by Washington Fence Co.
Float winners were Planet Gymnastics (1st), Our Lady of Lourdes (2nd), and Borgia Grade School (3rd). Thanks to all who decorated floats!
We'd also like to take a moment to thank our awesome parade committee. It takes a lot of work and planning to make the parade happen every year and we are grateful to those who volunteer to make it a success!
Pictures are available below, and The Missourian also has a great album here.
