As yet another way to celebrate International Days 2019 in Carbon County, Price City’s Main Street was shut down on Saturday morning to host the annual parade. This parade was well attended with community members, family and visitors alike filling the street well before the scheduled start time.
Local veterans, Grand Marshal Price City Police Chief Kevin Drolc, the Price City Library, Eastern Utah Community Credit Union, local schools, Carbon County royalty and more graced the streets during the parade while youth in attendance were given the opportunity to collect candy, frisbees, popsicles and more as they were thrown by parade participants.
Proceeding the parade, Price City Mayor Mike Kourianos was joined by city council members as they awarded floats with trophies and recognition. The categories were for best use of theme, chairman’s choice, mayor’s choice, most original, viewer’s choice, best car on parade, most beautiful, funniest and best all around.
The mayor’s choice went to Pinnacle Nursing and Rehab while Carbon High Drama won most original. Castle Country OHV were awarded with the best use of theme award while Terry Rowley’s ride was named best car on parade.
USU Eastern won the chairman’s choice with metalwork letters proudly on display on the float. Carbon County royalty was aptly deemed most beautiful with funniest going to Jetman Digicade, who had their participants dressed up as various video game characters.
Finally, Chrysalis was named best all around and the viewer’s choice was chosen by the parade attendees as the Carbon High School band.
