Yesterday the Model T Ford Club of San Diego attended the Coronado Independence Day Parade. There were 8 cars from our club all decorated with flags.
There were military bands, Veterans of many wars, and many dignitaries.
We went the full length of Orange Ave. which is the main street from the old ferry landing to the Hotel Del Coronado. People were lined up about 5 deep along both sides of the street. They kept shouting "honk your horn" I must have honked about 100 times.
This morning's paper said the crowd was estimated to be about 500,000 people. That's half a million!
Cool Norm ....
Good for you, Norm, supporting our nation's birthday.
Crowd estimates are wildly exaggerated. A person every two feet for a mile would be about 2500. Both sides would make it 5000. Five deep would make a crowd of 25,000 per mile.
The crowd was 10 to 15 deep on both sides of the 2 mile route. Close to half a million.
That's petty neat Norm.
I just have to ask. Are you bragging or complaining?
HA HA what a great day.
Actually, they were very well behaved and patriotic people. The trip into and out of Coronado was easy too, surprisingly. They did break up the parade traffic to let vehicles go in and out of town along the routes to and from North Island Naval Air Station, so just get into that route and travel through.
