And the 11th annual parade went off without a hitch

It may be short but it sure doesn’t lack in energy: the South Perry Parade is just over and the street is open again. Between firetrucks and politicians, little kids on decorated bikes and a few classic cars was grand marshal Wille Earthman - or Mother Earthman as neigbors call her - who has lived a great part of her life just off South Perry Street and just turned 102 years old. The bright red Mustang convertible Earthman was riding in stopped at the intersection of 10th Avenue and Perry, so the crowd could sing her ‘Happy Birthday.’

About this blog

Welcome to the South Perry neighborhood blog. My name is Pia Hallenberg and I’ve worked as a journalist in Spokane since the fall of 1998; for the last four years I’ve lived on South Perry Street.

I love the neighborhood so when time came to pick an area for The Spokesman-Review’s first neighborhood blog, the choice was simple: South Perry is where it’s at.
