The 5th Annual Bay Street Parade, aka the Old Mission Parade, was held on Sunday, June 30 (it’s always held the Sunday before the 4th of July). And as always, it was a blast.
Kids on bikes and scooters, horses and dogs sporting patriotic neckwear, and vehicles decked out with red, white and blue tooled along the parade route of Bay Street to the American Legion Hall. Nick Kroupa and his lovely wife Kathy served as the Grand Marshalls this year.
Peninsula Fire Department’s new Engine 1 also made an appearance, as did Paul Revere’s horse (aka Patti Rudolph) and the Statue of Liberty (aka Morgan Leigh Kelsey)!
A big thank-you to Connie Rohl-Parliament and the Bay Street crew for organizing the parade and being a gathering spot afterwards. Check out a few photos of the fun event.
