While speaking with Bob McEwan the other day, I echoed another member's observations that we were somehow blessed and that it never has rained on our Saturday Parade.

Bob told me that I haven't been around long enough and it has indeed occasionally been rainy. He sent me this photo of his Cord in the 1971 parade. Whew! These guys have long memories ... Notice the big crowd.

I stand corrected! Here's the proof!

Pictures no show :(

good year 1971... I missed the 1971 parade by a few week. If only I'd not been born late.

I have been attending since 1986 (1998 with a car) and both the Auburn and I have been rained on quite a few times. Now and then it was pretty much wet all weekend.

I do remember one year, I think 1988 or 1989 where the last car of the parade pulled into a parking spot and the the skys opened up with a good thunder storm. I was under the awning of the jewlery store across from the hotel.

I too remember the year Jim describes. It was indeed tragicomic to watch the frenzied attempts all over the square to get the tops up on Auburn Speedsters and Cord Phaetons. Nor a pleasant sight. (Not to mention the language.)
