A Good Time Had By All At The 2014 Canoga Park Memorial Day Parade!

On with the photos!

A scene right out of Despicable Me: The first lost balloon of the day was
a "minion," signaling the Official Start of the 2014 Canoga Park Memorial
Day Parade. Tune up your sousaphones and let the marching commence!

Wings Over Wendy's - a familiar presence at Wendy's Platt Village location.
Grand Marshall Raul Mendiola of the LA Galaxy

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. Not shown: DWP Union Leader and puppeteer
 Brian Darcy working the Mayor from below in a hidden compartment in the back seat.

The Canoga Park Elks, which incidentally have one of the best reception
halls and banquet facilities available to rent in the entire West Valley.
A funny, friendly clown from Circus Vargas that children
are sure to remember long, long after the parade is over.

Korean War vet and Canoga Park resident Bobby Gonzales.

Sadly, Ronald didn't wear his much ballyhooed new outfit to the parade. 
Disney's Herbie The Love Bug is always a crowd favorite.

Three cheers! The Canoga Park Friendly Neighborhood Council makes the scene. 
There goes the parade.  See you next year!
