More than a few of us stopped by this beautifully restored and very rare 1962 Volkswagen split-window truck to ask its owner (Ward Patterson of McKinleyville) why there were Mack truck symbols on each side of the front fenders. Patterson said the vehicle's original owner drove Mack trucks for a living and had added Mack-truck "everything" to the VW truck (he then removed everything but the two Mack truck symbols in his restoration).

Two vintage-car spectators stopped by to check out the 1964 Jaguar XKE roadster owned by Jim and Mary Ann Brown, of McKinleyville (in the background).

Every parade with live animals needs a volunteer at the end of the line to help clean up the droppings.
