Saturday night was the culminating event of the Lilac Festival:
The Spokane Lilac Festival 75th Diamond Anniversary Armed Forces Torchlight Parade.
Now there’s a mouthful!
There was royalty in the form of Lilac Princesses.
There was royalty in the form of a disappearing generation…
and of course, much recognition for our Armed Forces past and present.
After all, it was Armed Forces Day here in the United States.
And then there was the very personal reason why we spent many hours downtown on Saturday evening:
Our very own drum major, who spent half of the parade marching backwards.
