Another great parade. the weather was beautiful and the spirit was alive. for it bein the last stop, this town is so supportive of its events. the only negative i would like to comment on when evnts are in town is people and their dogs. we were walking along and we encountered a very disturbing site by the bell tower. there was a person sitting there minding their own business when his dog was attacked by a pitbull. go figure two punk kids, and a pitbull with no social skills!!!!! very sad

When Sally and I moved here about a decade ago, I got involved with the design and build of the Orting Float. It was a struggle to create a float with little to no money at the last minute, with scrap material that individuals donated. My hat is off to everyone who was involved in this years float-it was terrific. My only disappointment was to channel surf the TV and not see the parade. I have heard this from many other people so I know that I am not alone. Again great job on the float.

Who, is responsible for allowing the Pirates to ignite their cannon, every few minutes, during a peaceful, hometown, gathering! We finally figured out that the Massive explosion happened just after their siren went off. This must be stopped, next year!

The sight of that pirate, vigorously, pounding that steel bar, down the muzzle of that cannon onto the black powder, made me gather my folks and hide behind a lamp post, till they moved down the street, to the Spar Pole tavern. Shrapnel?

I have lived here for 61 yrs and have been in that parade many times with my clarinet and I still remember how tired you got and the wait as they set the whole thing in motion so you were in the right spot where you were expected to be. It does seem like way more people were here then I ever saw. Good pictures to view. I could not believe that TNT. had alot of pictures of people but, none of the floats and bands. We really do have a parade and city to crow about.

Since when has it been "illegal" for parade vehicles to toss candy or flowers to the children on the sides of the parade path, and who made the decision to enforce such a silly law toward the end of this parade anyway? How many YEARS has the parade been going and no one has mentioned that? And why this year of all years, a year in which we've lost police officers, lost the economy, and some of us struggle every day to find a reason to be happy...during a beautiful day of daffodils and sunshine s

I agree with Monica. So proud to bring family downtown to see this event and all the great volunteers who make it happen.
