Parade Season Starts at the Spokane Lilac Festival


Casey Schlomer has advanced to Queen for this years parade season. After many hours of volunteering, her, her family, and numerous volunteers have sent the float on to Spokane for the Spokane Lilac Festival’s Armed Forces Torchlight Parade. We couldn’t be more proud. This years float theme is, “Fun in the Sun”. If you cannot make it to Spokane, don’t worry. The float will be around for Odessa’s 45th annual Deutschesfest this September!

Queen Schlomer and family hope to make it to a couple of parades this year. If you count 20 parades as a couple! Some Saturdays are longer than others as the crew will try to hit multiple parades in one day! This Queen will have a busy summer ahead of her before starting her senior year this fall. We appreciate the time that Casey and her family will put in these next couple of months spreading Odessa’s good will around the area!
