Boatnik Parade Kicks Off

By Yessenia Anderson

GRANTS PASS,Ore. — Before people made their way over to Riverside Park the festivities kicked off with a drumroll.

The parade began early this morning. Marching down 6th street in Grants Pass with dozens of floats, vehicles and people. This year’s theme was,  “Home of the free, because of the brave”, an effort to honor those who served our country; a message that resonated even with the smallest parade goer.

“It’s my favorite because you get to celebrate all the veterans and remember that they served in the army for us,” said Skylar Andrews.

If you missed the fun Saturday you still have two more days to catch all the action. Activities begin again tomorrow at 9:30 at Riverside Park.
