First an award in Port Townsend in mid-May, then another one in Shelton two weeks ago, now another award for Seattle’s only traveling neighborhood-based float, the West Seattle Hi-Yu Summer Festival float, living out this year’s theme, “Dreams Do Come True“:
The West Seattle float participated in the Marysville Strawberry Festival Parade on Saturday evening. It fortunately did not rain all day, until the float was on the trailer on the way back to Seattle.
We won the Berrysville award. The crew worked hard to install lights for our first evening parade. However, because of our early position in the parade, it was fully daylight when we were on the route. Everyone will have to wait for Seafair Torchlight Parade to see the float lit up.
