How exciting!! The Happy Camp Coordinating Council has announced the theme for this years Bigfoot Jamboree Parade!! Now don’t go thinking that you have all the time in the world to make a float. Put your thinking caps on and come up with a stupendous idea!!
The theme is (da da…drum roll!!) Classic “Camp.”
Create a float that captures a piece of Happy Camp History. Maybe you’ll want to talk about the logging history and the mill or mills of your choice. Maybe you will want to talk about the Karuk Tribal Culture and the rich traditions of the Native American members of the community. Perhaps you want to talk about Mining, the Classic Hill, Siskon, Independence, Chamed or GreyEAgle mine. The original name, Murderer’s Bar, might be your float, the ’64 flood or fire fighting to keep Happy Camp safe. Perhaps you’ll recreate the historical “Camp” places, woodsman bar, the movie theater,, Evans Mercantile, Clear Creek or “the Eddie” swimming holes.
The Parade begins at 11 o’clock on Sumnday August 31st, 2014. We are looking forward to seeing you there, and seeing your entry into the Parade!!
