Southern Ute tribal member Selena Cook, candidate for San Ignacio Queen waves to the crowd, as she is chauffered by her sister Andreanna Cook. San Ignacio Fiesta will be July 26-27 in Ignacio. There will be a parade, horseshoe tournament and dance on Saturday and a mass and dinner on Sunday.
Members of the American Legion Post 143 of Bayfield and VFW Post 4031 of Durango led the parade and carried the colors. The parade kicked off with a fly-over by a helicopter.
Proudly carrying the stars and stripes atop his trusted steed, in full military uniform, this man garnered many smiles and even a few salutes during the patriot themed parade in Bayfield.
What would a parade be without cars, classic muscle cars at that.
“May the fourth be with you,” Bobo Fett was flanked by two storm troopers as they made their way down Mill Street, to the delight of many Star Wars fans, even taking the time to pose for photos afterwards.
This little tike had had enough of the fourth already it seems.
Squeegee Monkey Window Washing of Durango, handed out bananas to young and old alike, with a help from a couple friends, a gorilla and an orangutan.
As said by Smokey Bear, “only you can prevent forest fires,” a bit of valuable advice, especially this time of the year. Smokey Bear rode atop a U.S. Forest Service unit during the parade.
