More than 100 youngsters trouped down Joseph’s Main Street Friday morning in the Chief Joseph Days Junior Parade. Each participant got an ice cream cone from R&R Drive-in. Cash prizes in each category were donated by Mr. Timber, Inc.

The grand prize of a basketball hoop, donated by Coca-Cola Bottling of La Grande went to Sound of Running Feet, daughter of Chief Joseph Days: Jolee Cunningham and Pete.
