After parading around the neighborhood with American flags and fire crackers, we all would end up wading into the Crooked River with our costumes. We must have frightened off those folks in the canoe. It looks like they are paddling pretty hard to escape the madness! My Dad looks like he is waist deep in the water with his heavy winter overalls, overcoat and shovel. What a nutty bunch!
I wish I had more photos of these old Horribles Parades with my family.
