On Saturday morning the Parade brought most of the visitors and locals downtown. The Rendezvous Parade again this year had lots of Mountain Men, Indians and hoses. But there were boats, mini-cars, tractors, wagons, fire trucks, cop cars and even a couple politicians. A large crowd, spilling into the street, showed up to watch. After the parade the street vendors and traderís row were swamped with lookers and buyers before some started to disperse to the other activities.
