Part 3 Faribault Memorial Day Parade 1984
Last week, I shared a video of footage from the Memorial Day Parade in Faribault from 1984. And earlier this week, I shared Part 2 of that footage. Today, it's time for Part 3.
In the third and final part of the Memorial Day Parade footage, we see classic vehicles, firetrucks, a covered wagon and horses as part of the parade. The parade marches down a very different-looking Central Avenue in Faribault. It’s always interesting to look back in time and get a glimpse of the past and see how things have changed, or in some cases stayed the same.
At KRFO, our sister station in Owatonna, morning show host Loren Hart has been turning his love of area history into something he can share with listeners on the KRFO webpage by tracking down videos filmed in Owatonna from the past that have been shared to the internet. Inspired by this, I thought it would be fun to see what was out there for Faribault and came across this fun Memorial Day parade footage.
