Strathmere Fourth of July Parade Pictures (3) - Deauville Inn
To All Strathmere and Whale Beach Homeowners and Visitors,
Our third batch of pictures. The parade ends each year at the Deauville Inn, with free hot dogs and cold drinks - then trophies awarded as selected by our judges.
Gloria and Lynda welcome paraders and spectators to the Deauville...

Hot dogs are cooked up and served out.
and cool drinks are served.
Good music by Lew London...as the crowd builds.
Lew shows his versatility.
The trophies are ready.
Ken leads the Pledge as Brian Furey presents the colors.
Faux pas! What kind of doofus doesn't "uncover" for the pledge?
Debbie sings "God Bless America" at the beginning of the program rather than the end...
In his opening remarks, Ken reminds the crowd of how he tricked Jessica into co-chairing the parade, but that five years are enough and this is their swan song.
The kids are (more than) ready, and now it's time for the awards.
Butch announces the awards and Ken presents them.
Perhaps the best part of the day is when the kids learn they've won a trophy...
Another great parade day!!
And remember, it never rains on a Strathmere parade!
