Flag Day Parade 2017
Ocean Shores, WA

June 10, 2017 ~ Ocean Shores honors Old Glory by holding its annual Flag Day Parade, one of the few parades left in the United States....patriotism still lives here. We have many retirees who are veterans living in Ocean Shores and they, as well as current Military, Police and EMT. Parade watchers line Pt Brown Ave and W. Chance a La Mer Ave to watch the presentation of our Nation's Symbol by marching bands, drill teams, politicians, companies, non-profit organizations, and local clubs, citizens, and military personnel. There were 4 junior/senior high bands. The Grand Marshal was 2017 Miss Washington riding in a Porsche.

There were over 60 entries, including the Hoquiam Logger's Playday float, and BOOM!....the Pirate Ship Black Rose. Playtime Family Fun Center featured one of their bumper cars. For the 5th year, Ronald McDonald was in it. What would a classic American parade be without the classic and muscle cars?.....from the 1940's to the Mini Coopers to the brand new Corvettes....these car owners revved their engines along the streets. Towards the end of the parade, local heroes were showcased, ie the Ocean Shores Fire and Police departments. And a great part of any parade is to watch the drill team dance performances and listen to the marching bands.

See more pictures below to get a view of this fun time.
