MB Centennial Parade at a Glance

Posted by Dave Fratello on Thursday, May 24th, 2012 at 11:24pm.

It took 100 years for MB to put on an event like last Saturday's Manhattan Beach Centennial Parade, so here's hoping you'll forgive us for taking a few days to get some photos up online.

Below is a little selection of our photos from MBC's prime position at the start of the parade route.

We saw 100 entries, a few dozen dignitaries and notables, heard a few marching bands and old-time crooners, saw hundreds of girl scouts and a goodly number of boy scouts (girls win!), watched a few dozen horses hoof it, enjoyed endless numbers of elementary school marchers (plus MBMS kids too), and even caught both a stagecoach and Santa on virtual film.

A friend said lovingly of the parade: "So small town." But he quickly clarified: "That's why we love our little town!"

In addition to this little highlight pacakge, we also found some nice online selections of pics on Teri Roughen's blog, the Easy Reader's website, Daily Breeze online and MB Patch. (If you have an online gallery from the parade, email Dave [address: MBWatcher [ at ] gmail.com] and we'll post a link here.)
