Winners, possibly of Eatonville's pet parade

Eatonville has always loved parades. When I was young, my folks used to dress us up for the Pet Parade. As a kid I took it for granted and never even noticed when it stopped taking place.

The Pet Parade was part of the Community Day celebrations and was added in the 1950s. This first picture may be of the Pet Parade (although it look a bit early). At the bottom of the photo it reads “winners”.

The second photo though is definitely from the Eatonville Pet Parade. It was around 1967 and my brother, Lincoln Mettler, and my cousin, Christy Van Cleve, were elves under a toadstool. I guess you didn’t have to have a pet to be in the parade.
