Parade Ribbons & Pictures

By Beacon Staff

Hot weather didn’t deter visitors or the community from cheering on, and walking or rolling through, the annual Bigfork Fourth of July Parade.
Bigfork’s Parade has five categories with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place ribbons: Animals, Commercial, Youth, Auto, and Open. The open category can include family reunions, churches, charity groups, or anyone else who doesn’t fit into the first four categories. This year the Grand Prize overall went to The Lakeview Care Center’s “Western Hospitality” float.
