Papa Doo Run Run in the Park, July 3rd, click here My apologies to the Lampreys. By the time I was finally able to get to the park, they had left the stage, and so I have no coverage of them. It was not intentional, I just couldn't get there in time.

Here are some links to specific 4th of July Committee press releases and information about this year's festivities and downloadable audio files from this year's headliner:
Download Papa Doo Run Run performing Sloop John B or Fun, Fun, Fun, in Real Audio or MP3. If you don't have the player, click on the button below to download the player you need. I have not checked the Real Audio download, as I do not have Real Audio, so please let me know if you experience any problems. I know the MP3 works fine.

I have made two thumbnail index pages of the parade to speed up downloading, as close to chronological as possible, with a few exceptions, which are marked. If you just want to see a select few photos, the thumbnail page is your best bet, and you will also find links to videos in the photo captions. But if you plan to look at lots of pics, here's a hint to speed up your viewing. Click on any thumbnail picture to see it full-size. Then go to the navigation bar (location bar), and change the number to the left of the ".jpg" up by one, i.e., change 742k2_p01.jpg to 742k2_p02.jpg. Then press enter, or click go. This way you will be able to view all the pictures without having to come back to the thumbnail page, and waiting for it to reload. I have put the number of photo at the beginning of each row to make it easier for you. This method works on the parade and park photos only, not the concert photos.
The video files are all short, so they should be quick downloads, except the Sierra Madre City College video, which is just over 1 mb, about 3 minutes to download on a 56k. And if you see friends of yours on these pages, be sure and let them know, so they can see themselves too. A lot of people still don't know about this site, so please don't just assume they know they are on the site. They'll thank you for it, and I thank you for it as well.
