Grand Junction Parades From 60 Years Ago
Grand Junction is gearing up for this weekend’s Veterans Day Parade on Main Street. What did a local parade look like 60 years ago? You’ll be surprised how little they’ve changed. Take a look at downtown photos of past parades from the 1950’s, 60’s, and 70’s.
The 2017 Veterans Day Parade is Saturday, November 11, starting at 2 p.m. The route runs Main Street from 8th to 3rd. Put simply, the typical parade route.
Check out the video above. All photos were taken by late Daily Sentinel photographer Robert Grant. Look closely, you may see someone you recognize.
Aside from the black and white print, things really have changed that much, have they? Downtown itself doesn’t look that much different. Take a look at the video below.
Don’t miss this Saturday’s parade. Get there early to guarantee yourself a good spot. The National Weather Service predicts sunny skies with a high of 59. It might be a little chilly, so dress appropriately.
We’ll see you this Saturday for the annual Veterans Day Parade. Be sure to visit your downtown merchants and restaurants. More than anything, enjoy a fantastic Veterans Day.
