Our old Graham Truck is looking for riders to have fun in the 2019 Whiskey Flat Parade. This year’s theme is Boots, Chaps, and Cowboy Hats. Don’t that sound like fun? We need folks to help decorate the truck and ride in the parade. This is your chance to be in the parade. People love our old Graham truck and you will have a lot of fun. So dust off your western and gold mining duds and come out and be apart of the 2019 Whiskey Flat Parade.

Call Ron Anderson at 760-379-1123 before Saturday, February 16th.
