Pioneers on Parade

Fairbanks—Saturday, July 21, 2018, was the first really sunny and very warm day of  summer, making it a perfect day for crowds to line streets for the Golden Days Parade. Pioneers were featured in several of over 100 parade entries that celebrated the town’s origins.

Pioneer Ted Tisdale was the parade’s Grand Marshal. Pioneers’ Grand Igloo President and his wife, King and Queen Regents and Fairbanks Igloo presidents rode in antique cars driven by Pioneers while the “Lavelle Young” float featured local Pioneer ladies who greeted the crowds with smiles and waves.
