Some days, life is a parade
Shelton, Washington held its annual weekend celebration of Forest Festival May 30 through June 2, 2013. Of course the Mason County Optimist Club was right there in the midst of the fun.
The big event for the Optimist Club is the Kiddie and Pet Parade, a pre-show for the bigger than life Paul Bunyan parade that follows later in the day. The kids and pets dress up for the occasion and some snagged some whimsical prizes like the best junior Paul Bunyan award and the best Fairy Tale costume award, among others. And the pirate family shown below...they are none other than one of our favorite Mason County Optimist Club members Lorraine Coots's family.
Thanks for sharing the pictures, Lorraine! Click to check out more shots on Facebook.
