Kerri: I Luvva Parade, CdA’s 4th

On her Facebook page, Kerri Thoreson posts: "Where I'll be tomorrow during (Coeur d'Alene's 4th of July) parade ... stop by or wave!"

Kerri Thoreson (RE: To be in Coeur d'Alene on 4th of July): I can't imagine anywhere else to celebrate the 4th of July than Coeur d'Alene. Since we moved here in the mid-1960s when I was in Jr High and lived in the old John T. Wood house on 9th and Sherman, the 4th of July has been a very special time in the Lake City. Sitting on the porch of that big old house to watch the parade, taking my younger siblings in the Kiddie Parade, watching the fireworks from City Beach ... it was idyllic. As an adult I've accompanied floats, driven grand marshals (Ace Walden was a favorite!) and tomorrow for the fourth year I'll be announcing the parade from the skybox on Sherman between 3rd and 2nd Streets. Happy Birthday America!

Question: Which entry do you most like to see at Coeur d'Alene's 4th of July Parade?
