HOME TOWN SPECIAL
Cambria's Pinedorado ParadeThe 67th Cambria Pinedorado parade is led off, as always, by the Calliope.
Tucked between the Pacific and the Santa Lucia mountains Cambria's main street from East Village to West Village takes its place as a stage for homegrown Americana.
Looking north, the parade leaves the East Village and heads toward West village.
Above the Slabtown Rollers, a crowd favorite, pause to serenade the viewers, led by Greg Stone and watched carefully by one of the youngest spectators.
The young spectator is also taken with the Model A's.
Those of us who are more senior were impressed with what could be one of the earliest versions of the California Woody.
A couple of pals, John Angel and Reggie Perkins join other WW II vets.
It's the kind of parade where one of the favorite local bands takes a spot.
And where a local councilwoman becomes a cat lady to sing for the homeless animal rescue shelter (HART)
The high school football team and cheerleaders take a position
The Dancersize class was a crowd favorite.
Even the Farmer's Market grew a float.
And as always the last position is the Calliope.
See you down the trail.
