It had special categories of events: best decorated bicycle, best decorated doll buggy, etc. This view is of a baton corps at 6th and Commercial. Western Auto Supply in the Shannon Building is visible on the southwest corner. The business began here c. early 1940s, but later than 1940, and remained at this address through the 1962 city directory. The 1973 -7 directories listed it at 1611 Commercial. Sometime between 1962 and 1973 it was located at 1502 Commercial.
