A flower festooned Ford rolls through town.
The sun was shining and the rhododendrons were blowing in the breeze on Saturday for the annual Rhododendron Parade through Eureka. Pageant queens waved serenely from cars crammed with blossoms, marching bands strutted down the streets and the Shriners zipped around in their tiny cars while judges handed out trophies and crowds lined the sidewalks to view the proceedings. Once it all wound down, Carson Park welcomed folks for hot dogs, bouncy houses and relaxing in the grass. Photographer Mark McKenna was there snapping photos of the flowers and the faces. Enjoy his slideshow of the day below.
