PICs – Sun shines bright on Spruce Point Park Parade

Kinuso Merchantile turned back the pages of history to display an old-fashioned trading post. The business opened in 1963 and is a pillar in the hamlet. Tack, anyone?

Colourful floats, a few cowboys and several dazzing antique cars and trucks highlighted the Spruce Point Park Association’s Rodeo Parade June 29. About 30 entries walked and/or drove past the hundreds attending the event alogn Main Street, which kicked off two days of action in the hamlet and at Spruce Pont Park. Many entries adhered to the theme of “Wild Wild West” and many prizes were awarded to winners in several categories. Children eagerly scooped up treats tossed to them by entrants. Parade marshals Roberta Hunt and Holly Malanowich were in charge of the parade.
