Folks Line Streets for Creswell Parade

CRESWELL, Ore. — With more than a hundred entries, the city said this year’s Creswell Fourth of July Parade was definitely bigger and better than in years past.

What started out more than 20 years ago as a way to show off a new fire engine, the parade has grown into a massive tradition for this small town.

New this year was a route change and despite a few complaints, the people who lined the streets didn’t seem bothered by the move.

“The change was a surprise, but I understand that there’s no outlet for emergency services,” said James Prewett.

“I’m actually really excited that it’s going down my street this year,” Trisha Jackson.

“It’s always wonderful and I think wherever it is, people will sit in it, sit by it and enjoy it,” said Stan Mercer.

Also new was a shuttle system to help alleviate parking and traffic issues.
