PORT ANGELES — Sitting on lawn chairs, blankets and in strollers, hundreds of spectators turned out for Port Angeles’ first Fourth of July parade in years.

“I remember bringing my grandkids down here when they were little, but they are all grown up now,” Port Angeles resident Doris Stern said.

The all-vehicle line-up included vintage autos, race cars and two bands playing on trailers.

“I liked it. I liked the candy,” said 5-year old Sabrina Cook of Port Angeles.

She was one of hundreds of children that scurried for candy thrown to them by parade participants.
