Planada celebrates Community Day with parade

Residents turned out for Planada’s annual Community Day parade on Saturday, the first since January’s catastrophic flooding left much of the town underwater.

Members of local churches, biker clubs, little league teams and marching bands featured in the parade, which ended with an outdoor fair in the Planada park.

The Grand Marshal for this year’s parade were Luis and Estella Villa Gomez, owners of the La Gallito Bakery, who were recognized for their contributions to the community in the aftermath of the floods.
