Eatonville has been having a 4th of July parade for as long as there as there’s been an Eatonville. Here is 4th of July when the town was young, Mashell Ave. was still a dirt road and electricity was a new thing. But just like today, people are lining the streets to celebrate the 4th.

Happy 4th of July everyone.
