The youngest paraders: Rotary Club of West Seattle Kiddie Parade

(All photos by Christopher Boffoli unless otherwise credited)
There were actually two parades in West Seattle on Saturday – with the Rotary Club of West Seattle-presented Kiddie Parade charming the crowd in The Junction ahead of the American Legion Post 160 Grand Parade. This participant had not just a tiger in the tank, but also on the head:

Other creative costuming was sighted, too:

And just like in the Grand Parade, some cool cars made their way down the route:

Yes, the proper parade rider must have sun protection:

But it’s not a parade without a banner – here’s the banner that always leads this parade off:

Also carrying a banner – the newly crowned 2010-2011 West Seattle Hi-Yu Junior Royalty:

If you missed it this time around, remember the Kiddie Parade is right before the Grand Parade every year, and all kids are welcome to join in.

    Missing the Kiddie Parade was the one disappointing thing about veiwing the Grand Parade near it’s start.

    .

    Last year was my first time to the Parade in many years, and the Alki Car Show was the same day. So, I decided to find a viewing spot at/near the start of the Parade, so as soon as it was over, I could walk down to the Car Show.

    .

    So, even though the Car Show was last Saturday this year, I decided to head to the same area as last year for the Parade. (And got a spot on the bus stop bench in front of Hiawatha again! :cool: ) That way, what with my issues with being stuck in crowds, I could escape northbound, and hang out in Admiral for awhile, rather than facing huge crowds going the opposite direction, no matter what direction I was going, had I been more in the middle of the parade.
