We grabbed sandwiches at The Red Fox Bakery, and had them boxed up so we could find a place on the parade route. I had a roasted turkey, Gouda, Apple sandwich on crunchy golden raisin bread, that seriously had to be one of the best sandwiches that I've ever had! As a bonus, they included the most amazing chewy, melt in your mouth macaroon. I always thought macaroons were boring, dried up poor excuses for a cookie, but these, were amazing! I read on their website where they are baked daily and can be mailed! Must check that out!
Runners in the Abduction Dash were pelted with water balloons from the balcony of the hotel as they finished the race.
If that didn't get them wet, the Ghostbusters crew was on hand to finish the job!
Wait... a sighting!
I don't know how many people attended the UFO Parade, but they were six deep on the streets, and many wore costumes.
These guys had the best headgear, especially the guy on the left with a saucer that lit up!http://www.rense.com/general/mcmin50.htm

Not sure about the fish, but it was a big crowd pleaser!
Lots of Alien beings...
Even the local Square Dancers were out of this planet!
This guy was amazing-the photo doesn't do him justice.
This band was really extra terrestrial-The Love Bomb Go-Go Marching Band, from Portland
This spaceship floated down the street to the delight of all the kids, big and old!
This entry featured the McMenamin's Hammerhead Beer. It took me awhile to figure out the hammer heads
You gotta love this little guy!
Kip and his wonderful sons, Skyler, and Ben
Everyone got into the spirit
Have we had enough 'Keep Calm...yet?
More foil headgear!
Friends, Pam, Barb, and Karen...
Sweet Murphy was so freaked out by the firetrucks, he didn't make the Pet Parade, even though he had a great costume!
These guys were great!
Even NASA was on hand...I guess they don't have much to do these days!
A good time was had by all!
