Eugene Celebration Parade
A big part of each year's Eugene Celebration is the Saturday morning parade. Eugene is proud of its free-spirited diversity, and this is one more way to celebrate it. The theme this year was "Strange We Can Believe In" and contingents ranged from an old-timers' marching band to roller derby queens.
As luck would have it, the first big rain of the season hit the night before. It poured in sheets most of the night, but by morning it was a more typical Eugenian splutter. And warm enough to weather.
Besides, Eugenians are ducks, and rain doesn't stop any of us. So the parade went on as usual and the crowds came anyway.
The dazzling colors of the parade more than made up for the drabness of the day.
“Hope to see you there next year!”
