Sunny skies brought out smiling faces for the 74th Azalea Festival Parade Saturday morning, a signature event of the Memorial Day Weekend in Brookings-Harbor.

Floats and fire trucks, horses and dogs, kids and hot rods filled Chetco Avenue for two hours, with thousands of people lining the street.


Bears were on hand for the parade.
