Mountian Top Days Parade ~ Running Springs

Who doesn’t love a good parade!  This Friday night August 1, 2014 there is a parade in Running Springs at 6:30.

OH AND I WILL BE WALKING IN THIS ONE WITH MY SEARCH AND RESCUE TEAM, SO LOOK FOR THE ONES IN BRIGHT ORANGE!

Here is a cute blog about the parade from: http://joanmoseley.wordpress.com/2014/07/23/everybody-loves-a-parade-so-come-to-the-r-s-parade-on-august-1/

The world’s biggest parade is coming to Running Springs on Friday, August 1. Well, that’s a slight exaggeration but I knew it would get your attention.

The town’s biggest parade, however, may be more accurate and when it comes down Hilltop Blvd it should be a-maz-ing! Parade Chairman Jennifer Kellum has put hours and hours into organizing this parade and after last year’s Mountain Days Parade (that was the biggest in decades) she’s got another great parade planned for Friday night, August 1.

This year, to help the Running Springs Area Chamber of Commerce pay well over $1500 for the parade permits from Caltrans and the county and to pay hundreds of dollars for required help from the CHP this will be the first time in the parade’s long history that we are asking our parade participants to pitch in $5 to help defray some of the costs.

For the first time the parade has a “title” With so many things that have happened to our community in the past several years the title, “We’re Still Here!” pays homage to our community members and organizations who have helped each other when the huge landslide took out Hwy. 330 a few years ago following a horrendous storm. We’ve had a tough time financially with the down turn in the economy and several other factors that we have no control over. However, we’re mountain people and mountain people figure out how to survive when times are tough….whether that means the weather, the roads, the economy or just plain old “life.”

Don't these children look fabulous! You think they had fun being in last year's parade?  Hopefully they'll be in this one too!!
