You missed what my wife and I thought was one of the best floats we’ve seen. It was a simple living art presentation of the Iwo Jima Memorial. Four boys dressed in character, positioned holding the US flag and remaining still while their decorated trailer slowly rolled through Ferndale drawn by a WWII Jeep.
Tractors, horses, goats, fire trucks, candidates, old cars and Scooby Doo on a scooter filled out the rest of the parade. But the Iwo Jima float was the best.
