As I mentioned in Thursday’s post, I spent July 4 taking a stab at a long-held goal of hitting a number of the mid-valley’s Independence Day festivities.
And, as also mentioned, I took some photographs that I had trouble uploading the evening of the Fourth.
July 5 brought better luck in that regard, so without further ado, here are those pics:
Lumberjack Breakfast, Timber-Linn Memorial Park, Albany, 6:30 a.m. Excuse the hazy appearance; the lens on my iPhone had, unbeknownst to me, picked up some sunflower seed dust from an unfortunate pocket pairing.
Timber-Linn Lake, 7:20 a.m.
Part of the veterans memorial, Timber-Linn, 7 a.m.
LDS church, Grand Prairie Road, Albany, 8 a.m.
Pioneer Park, Brownsville, 9:30 a.m. Just before taking this pic, I discovered the sunflower dust problem and cleaned the lens.
Pioneer Park, Brownsville, 9:45 a.m.
In the moments before the Harrisburg parade, 11 a.m. This fellow couldn't seem to decide if he were trying to be Elvis, Capt. America or Evel Knievel.
Harrisburg parade, 11:10 a.m.
The Harrisburg High class of 1962 is having a reunion this week and entered a float in the parade based around their senior trip to the Seattle World's Fair; the float included a replica of the Space Needle.
This letterman's sweater was among the class of 1962 float's decorations.
Multiple houses in Harrisburg were decked out for the holiday, and the parade lineup and turnout were impressive. I think all of the town's 3,000 residents were on hand for the celebration.
