Caption Children's Parade
Description The "Juvenile" or Children's Parade of the Marineers' Pageant was usually held on Friday, separate from the big community parade held on Saturday. It had special categories of events: best decorated bicycle, best decorated doll buggy, etc. This view is of children holding a stretcher; the girl is dressed as a nurse with a sign which says, "Learn First Aid". The wagon at the far right has vegetables and a sign saying, "Dad Luvera fresh vegetables." The wagon was pulled by Russell Childs (not seen) who dressed up like Nicola Luvera and won first place in the parade. His picture is in the 8-10-1939 ANACORTES AMERICAN. The wooden building and sign at rear that says, "Cabins" was probably for the Trulson Auto Camp. In the 1920s and 30s auto travel became more popular and a number of "Auto Courts" opened on the south end of Commercial Avenue. The 2-7-1929 paper reported, "New auto camp will be completed soon ... with 7 modern and up to date cabins." The Trulson Auto Camp was located at 10th just off of Commercial. Also see WF 5870.
