SLIDESHOW: White Center parade celebrated the community
The White Center Parade on Sunday the 22 took place under cloudier skies but the turnout was fantastic and larger than 2011 when rain curtailed the numbers. The July Jubilee Days event was in honor of the late Mickey Kraut.
She was a tireless advocate for the White Center community for decades. Kraut was a board member for the White Center Chamber of Commerce, was a patron of the Boys and Girls Club, and volunteered for the King County Sheriff's office for 18 years. She was well known as a long-time organizer of Jubilee Days.
The parade winners were the Washington Diamonds Drill Team, followed by the Diva Upgrades and the Essential Steppers. The All Time Parade Favorite was the Northern Alliance Drum Corps from Portland Oregon. The Seattle All City Band recieved the Music Note trophy and the Churros recieved the Horse trophy.
Entries in the parade included McLendon's Hardware, The West Seattle High School football program, The Churros band and horse troupe (they did an impromptu performance after the parade complete with dancing horses), The White Center Eagles, classic cars, a succession of tow trucks from classic to massive from Airport Towing, fire engines, clowns, and several drill teams.
