“The Fabulous Fifties”

Re-posted with this correction: The $200 prize mentioned is for the Best Vintage Car or Truck.

Announcing the theme of the 2013 4th of July Parade

Unpack your poodle skirts and dust off those saddle shoes! Pam and Lin Pearson of Petro San Juan, longtime volunteer organizers of the San Juan Island 4th of July parade, announce that the parade theme this year is The Fabulous Fifties!

“We’re offering a $200 grand prize for the best vintage car or truck,” says Pam, who said she is looking forward to lots of men in white T-shirts (with or without a pack of Lucky Strikes tucked into the rolled-up sleeve), vintage cars and rock n’ roll music. We’re hoping to get lots of 1950s cars in the parade this year. The entry fee is only $20…Spread the word!

Please visit Petro San Juan at 605 Mullis Street (phone 378-5122) or the Chamber of Commerce office at 135 Spring Street (phone 378-5240) for your application to join in this fun parade.

(2013 Parade Marshall to be announced later. Stay tuned!)
