This past Memorial Day the Park Ridge community honored the veterans who died while serving in the U.S. military. It was beautiful day for a parade.
The Park Ridge Indian Scouts and Indian Princesses pulled wagons while throwing candy and trinkets to parade goers. And yes, there were the parade floats of the PR Iroquois Nation. Kermit the Frog, a giant rubber duck, running with the bulls, a dinosaur, patriotic themed vehicles, flamingos and a Tiki bar were a few of the floats that traveled the parade route. The Seminole had a massive float themed with the organization’s upcoming name change to the Park Ridge Wilderness Scouts and Princesses. Matt Adam’s Chippewa tribe, part of the PR Winnebago Nation, decided to get in on the action with their salute to the new Star Wars movie. Maybe it is time for the rest of Federation to get into the float competition, too.
It was a great parade. Most importantly, the kids had fun with there families as we paid tribute to our fallen veterans.
We at the Park Ridge Indian Scouts and Indian Princesses would like to thank the current and former members of U.S. military for all they do to protect our freedom. Thank you.
