REDMOND, Ore. - The Redmond Chamber of Commerce & CVB released the winning entries of this year's Redmond Fourth of July Parade, presented by Hayden Homes, which drew thousands of spectators to downtown Redmond for the nearly two-hour community spectacle.
Of the nearly 90 entries this year, awards were given within fi ve categories of entries: children, commercial, mounted, individual and organization. This year's theme upon which entries were judged was "Land of the Free, Home of the Brave."
According to Redmond Chamber of Commerce Events Director Karen Sande, the quality of Friday's entries made selections difficult for this year's judges.
"As they seem to do each year, entries from all categories upped the ante in 2014, offering up their own interpretations of our theme in thoughtful, creative and clever ways," Sande said. "Our judges certainly had their work cut out for them this year, but I feel they made some great selections."
