‘Hurbie’ wins Best Individual honor in parade

July 6, 2005

The crowd lining 12th and May streets on Monday morning got to enjoy the wide range of entries in the Hood River Fourth of July parade, but only five of them came away as winners. Judging was by the Heights Business Association.

Best Individual Entry went to Dave Hall for his 1978 Volkswagen Bug. Hall’s win was especially sweet as Monday was his 58th birthday. Best Commercial Entry went to The Learning Farm Preschool, owned by Joan and Syd Engebretson.

Immanuel Lutheran Church, which is celebrating its centennial this year, won the Best Organization Entry. An 1899 steam-driven car was featured on its float.

Best Vehicle Entry was won by Little Bit Ranch Supply owners Karen and Bob Howard for their 1948 Chevrolet pickup truck.

Most Patriotic Entry went to Eagle One Thrift Store, owned by Keith and Cindy Green.
