Caption Marineers' Pageant Parade - 1939
Description The Marineers' Pageant was an annual Anacortes summer even which was held each July from 1937-1941, 1947-1949, and 1957.The huge undertaking, mounted by the city's business community, resulted in thousands of visitors, and their dollars, coming to Anacortes. Events during those years included Indian canoe races, a Mass Wedding at Causland Park in 1938, a "Cat-putter-outer Contest", pageant royalty, water events off the Marine Stadium (amphitheater) located on Cap Sante, and, of course, the parades. One parade was for children, and the other was for floats, marching bands, and other units.

This car is covered with newspaper, including the hub caps. The car appears to be heading north on Commercial just north of 6th and Commercial. The post office (Federal Building) is decorated with bunting, and a tepee is seen at the left side of the image.
