Seeing the great marching bands at our July 4th parade last year reminded me how exciting they can be. It looks like the horses have already been through here, but it doesn't disturb this band's formation.
They're marching up Oak Street, passing the First National Bank at 3rd. You can see the theater (the Liberty?) and the J.C. Penney store on the left.
Enjoy tomorrow's parade and fireworks. Take lots of pictures so future HHR curators will have material to choose from.
There will be a special HHR holiday post tomorrow.

The Liberty became the Cascadian by the time I was growing up. Penney's is down the hill in the next block.
I think I see 48 stars on the flag?

charlott, I've cropped this image but the leftmost building is labeled "J.C.Penney". I thought I remembered it being between 2nd and 3rd, not 3rd and 4th. I wonder when it moved?

I wonder who the band group is. Almost looks like a Forest Service type of hat.

Do we have a year this picture was taken?

The Cascadian was there before 1939 as I have a desk calendar with that date and has the Rialto and Cascadian on it.

JC Penney moved to the old F. A. Cram store building in 1923.

The JC Penney company was moving into the Otten Building formerly occupied by F. A. Cram in May 1923.
