Saturday, May 21st, 2005: Florence Days Parade:
2005 Parade Theme: Our Children - The Future of Florence
2005 Parade Grand Marshal: Lynn and Shirley Farris
Florence celebrates its heritage each year with a parade and lots of other activities. The celebration is organized by the Florence Historical Foundation. The parade continues a tradition that started with a horse club parade 57 years ago (1960). It grew.
The 2005 parade was a very special parade so please send any photos you have. The path traveled was from Redick Avenue to Fillmore Street. The parade was led by the 2005 Honor Guard, the Boy Scouts Troop 20.
The 2005 parade was organized by Dick Brown of Dick's Place (for the Florence Historical Foundation), which is the barber shop in the old Toll Booth building located at 3010 Willit (next to the Bank of Florence). The phone number at Dick's Place is 402-453-6688.
