SPParks & Parks in July 4 Parade07/09/2019
The theme for Sonoma's 4th of July parade commemorated the 50th anniversary of the moon landing; our title for SPParks presentation was "Rocket to the Valley of the Moon”. Our launch pad (Cal Park's Chevrolet one ton truck) was driven by Dave Duplantier. Sonomie, our parks mascot, was a hitchhiker for the journey. Ann and Mike Cox provided the basic ideas and materials. Mike Cox and Jim Danaher were involved with rocket development (carpet tube and plywood) and the launch pad was finished by SPParks board member Sue Vargas. A great concept, fun to execute, always exciting to be in the parade, but no prize this year.
