The Sunnyside Chamber of Commerce would like to thank the Lighted Farm Implement Parade Committee members - Karen Friend, Ervin and Sharon Kilian, Ruben Carrera and the judges - for helping with such a great event!
We had 80 entries and we estimate 30,000+ spectators.
Of course, we couldn't have done it without our sponsors - Banner Bank and the Port of Sunnyside - and our media sponsors, the Daily Sun News, KXDD and KAPP. The work from the Sunnyside Police Department in keeping everything safe and sane during the parade along with the help from the fire department for putting the pole decorations up and city staff for all of the "extras" you did to help with getting ready for the parade is appreciated.
We look forward to next year's parade; Sunnyside's 25th Lighted Farm Implement Parade.
