Rose Festival Merrykhana Parade, 1927

Since the Rose Festival was just a few weeks ago, I thought I would share an image from the Rose Festival Merrykhana Parade on June 24, 1927. The Merrykhana parade eventually became the Starlight Parade. This is the Police Reserve’s entry that year. In the background you can see A. G. Spalding and Bros., an athletic outfitters store located on Broadway at Alder Street according to the 1927 Polk Directory.

  1. We painted up a car with brightly colored circles & Squares & took it into the Merrykhana Parade in 1967. I have a couple of photos of the car but none of the parade.
