More than 80 parade entries are expected Saturday at Ocean Shores for the state’s biggest Flag Day celebration. Joint Base Lewis-McChord is sending its military Color Guard and the Grand Marshal is state Lieutenant Gov. Brad Owen.
For the kids, Ronald McDonald, along with Matilda the Camel will be on hand. There will be music from four marching bands, vintage cars, clubs and organizations and political candidates.
The parade route starts on Point Brown Avenue at the city gates and proceeds south to the roundabout, where it turns west on Chance a la Mer and then takes a final turn north on Ocean Shores Boulevard where it disperses.
