Helpning out in the parade were 4 of my grandchildren and 4 of Melanie's children plus my son-in- law and Melanie's husband. They walked ahead of the car carrying the banner and handing out candy.
The parade and festival is named after Silverton, Oregon's famous son, Homer Davenport, who became an internationally renowned cartoonist in the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. The weather was perfect for a parade and the route just the right length. We loved the city of Silverton!
