Clampers represent proudly at the annual parade along Main Street in Greenville. Children take cover from the hot sun with crafts under the trees in the Masonic Lodge yard. The local American Legion Color Guard leads off the parade. Face painting and beanbag tosses are some of the many children’s activities for the day. Veteran Joy Brown marches for Plumas County’s first Veterans Stand Down slated for Sept. 22. Retired chief Jim Hamblin, left, rides in one of the many fire engines participating in the parade. Emcee and County Supervisor Kevin Goss waxes nostalgic as he talks about the GHS Class of 2018 and the ‘80s-themed float they entered in the parade — the only float this year. San Francisco 49er fans were in agreement that this classic car deserved first place. This and other classic cars in the parade were later showcased at the Mohawk Trading Company’s parking lot for the annual car show. Gigi’s Market is still in a holding pattern for opening, but that didn’t stop owner Ginger Gamble from participating in the parade with this ancient truck. Evergreen Market sponsored the annual Pedal Car Race with two sets of Indian Valley youth participating in the race — and then driving through the crowd after. After the parade, it is time to head to the Greenville Methodist Church lawn for the annual ice cream social.
