Marilynn and I watched the parade. Saw this nice halftrack. Who is the owner? It was running on 5 cylinders.

Joe Garbarino sent some tanks and other vehicles from his collection to the Larkspur-Corte Madera parade this year. He usually supports one or the other parade, sometimes both. Not this one, except his M35 truck with USMC paint job was in the Novato parade. I think this is the one he bought from Shirley Laird in Oregon. It has seats in the bed for VIPs.

Art Marthinson from San Rafael ran his WWII jeep in the parade with son and another rider.

The perennial favorite Marin County comedy drill team Nave Patrola made their annual appearance. They portray a WWI Italian army unit that is amazingly coordinated in their actions, such as they are. This includes close order drill (like compressed where backs and stomachs are touching, and falling down as a group. The Nave's are an old Marin family and members have participated in this unit for decades.
