The theme for this year’s Glenwood Springs Strawberry Days Parade was “125 Years of Awesomeness – Think All Things Strawberry Days!” Our staff chose to celebrate the ‘50s era of Strawberry Days on June 18, 2022 by dressing up as characters from the movie, Grease. Our Edwards Site Practice Director, Amanda Canete, led the staff in weekend float designs and build-outs while also procuring costumes. The morning of Strawberry days, staff arrived at 7 am to finish the float, get dressed up, and practice some dance moves for the parade. Everyone is incredibly excited that in our first time as an organization in the parade, we also took home 1st Place Non-Profit Float. There was a great turn out from staff and wonderful showing of our community to celebrate the big day. We are already looking forward to next year.
