Here’s a look at the partial tentative parade lineup for Bass Lake Pre-Mid-Summer Festival Week Days, which opens tonight. To see the complete parade lineup, visit the festival committee’s website.

Parade start time is 12:45 p.m. Saturday, “if plans go as planned,” according to planners.

One thought on “Tomorrow Today: Parade lineup set for festival

  1. The ’38 Bentley mentioned wouldn’t likely be in a parade near or far from Bass Lake, as it has to be driven on the left side of the road and would not be seen near a cheese truck or far from an auction block if sighted near a salt truck.
