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
MBWatcher [ at ] gmail.com] and we'll post a link here.)
