(All WSB coverage of the West Seattle Grand Parade is archived here, newest to oldest)
From motorcycles at the start to DeLoreans at the end – a last-minute entry by the Pacific Northwest DeLorean Club (which won an award!) – Saturday’s West Seattle Grand Parade showcased a wide variety of vehicles. Though we published plenty of parade coverage yesterday, before/during/after, we still have a few roundups in the works, and this is one of them – click ahead for some of the vehicular highlights!
Most memorable motorcycle of the parade: Parade-presenting American Legion Post 160 Commander Chris Shea rode one with a sidecar, instead of the more-traditional convertible. He was outnumbered, of course, by the parade’s two police-motorcycle drill teams – the hometown Seattle Police:
And the team you seldom see in other local parades, the Vancouver (B.C.) Police:
We can guarantee you the only tractor in the parade was the one in the Tibbetts United Methodist Church (WSB sponsor) entry:
Another WSB sponsor, Hotwire Online Coffeehouse, entered its Cooper Mini in the parade – with its own ad-hoc royalty and pirate – Princess Zoe and Pirate Roan:
Some vehicles were towed instead of driven – like the ones showcased by the multi-truck Hadlock’s Towing entry toward the end of the parade:
West Seattle Food Bank board member Pete Spalding was at the wheel of the WS Food Bank van, which you probably see often, making the rounds of local stores that donate surplus food, and other errands that help fight hunger in our community:
Human-powered vehicles were abundant, too. We’ve already shown you the award-winning Sustainable West Seattle “Trikeceratops” entry a few times – human-powered also included many of the pulled/pushed/pedaled West Seattle Rotary Kiddie Parade participants, like these:

Still to come – a couple more roundups, including one with all our coverage links plus video of the parade in its entirety.
