Scenes from Leavenworth Road Parade
by Brian Turrel
After a year off due to road construction, the Leavenworth Road Parade came back Saturday in full force, with 41 entries, including four marching bands and seven dance troupes, making the march down Leavenworth Road from Washington High School near 72nd Street to Welborn Elementary near 51st.
Hundreds of spectators lined the sides of the road, most clustered around the shopping areas at 61st and 55th Street, as well as the review stand at Casa de Alabanza near 52nd Street.
The day was sunny and unseasonably warm, with highs in the upper 80s. Emergency workers treated at least one onlooker for heat exhaustion.
