Eatonville has always been a fan of the 4th of July Parade. In fact, so many people take part in the parade, I’ve always been surprised there are still some left to watch.

Judging by these two photos, the cars may have changed, but not the enthusiasm.

  1. Notice some cars steer from the right side of the car while others steer from the left. I guess they hadn’t made up their mind if you keep to the right or left while driving.
