Patrick Price knows what it’s like to be hungry.

As a boy, his mother and stepfather left to go shopping – and came home five days later from a trip to Las Vegas.

Price and his brother and sister survived by eating green acorns off a backyard tree at their home in San Bernardino, Calif.

Thousands of spectators lined Chetco Avenue and Oak Streets to enjoy sunny skies and “Gems of the South Coast” during the 73rd Azalea Festival parade.

Winning the top award – the Sweepstakes Award – was a pirate ship, perhaps not seaworthy but was able to float down the parade route, entered by C&K Markets. Judging the parade were members of Soroptimist International of Brookings, who were seated in the bed of a pickup parked in front of Kerr’s Ace Hardware.
