Rain, sun or hail, they marched on

During the Maple Valley Days parade on Saturday, groups from all over the community continued down Witte Road with a smile on their face despite the rain.

The rain started to pour, the hail came and went, but that didn’t stop the parade goers or those who participated in the parade.

During the Maple Valley Days Parade that took place on Saturday, June 9, the day started off to a dry start and sunny, then came the rain.

People, animals and floats were getting soaked, but that didn’t stop anyone from marching on — or keep the smiles off their faces. The parade continued down Witte Road until the very end.

Maple Valley Days is an event that takes place every year in June. This year it started on June 8 and lasted until June 10.

Aside from the parade that takes place on Saturday and Sunday, there is also fun festivities for everyone to enjoy at Lake Wilderness Park.
