Moseying down Main Street

May 22, 2013

Costumed entries are among the most popular for spectators of the Mule Days Parade. The 2013 procession – every bit of it non-motorized – begins at 10 a.m. Saturday. (For detour information, see pg. 7.) Photo by Julie Garrison

With new and revamped categories, old favorites and a long and varied string of entrants, 2013 Mule Days Parade-goers can look forward to a lively lineup this weekend.
Every year, hundreds if not thousands of spectators plan ahead, placing chairs along the Main Street parade route the Friday before the parade. It will likely be standing room only by the time the VFW Color Guard heads out at 10 a.m., Saturday, May 25, as first entry, making its way along Main Street in Bishop from South to Sierra streets, then turning west to the fairgrounds.
There will be a few category changes this year, Mule Days Executive Committee Member and Parade Chairman Denton Sonke said.
