We are happy to announce the drive-by caravan to celebrate Garibaldi Days which took place on July 25, was, by all accounts, a success. The community came together in an act of solidarity with a showing of approximately 15 vehicles, several pedestrians, and cyclists with music and bubbles among smiling faces. We thank all who contributed with the beautiful old cars, patriotic decorations, and, of course, the gorilla. We also want to thank those who greeted us from their porches, driveways, and lawn chairs, cheering and clapping. A special shout out to those that spread the word. It was a joy to do; and we were pleased when participants and spectators alike expressed their gratitude to have the opportunity to celebrate the city’s 60th anniversary of the event.
