Summer is winding down and but there is enough time to get in one more parade, picnic and car show. Duarte will be celebrating its 53rd Anniversary on Saturday, September 18th with a parade down Huntington Drive (aka, Route 66) and a picnic at Royal Oaks Park after the parade. The parade grand marshall will be Jordan Romero, the 13 year old who recently climbed Mount Everest!
Along with dozens of vintage cars on display in the park, there will be an arts and crafts show, over 40 food and display booths (can you say Kettle Corn!), and live music.
I will be there to eat some food and view the cars, like this Corvette that was on display at the La Verne Cool Cruise this last spring. More information may be found at www.DuarteRoute66Parade.com.
