Red Roosters rule at kiddie parade

Red Roosters win grand prize in CJD kiddie parade

The 2012 Chief Joseph Days parade this morning was a big hit, filled with cowboys and cowgirls, hikers and clowns, fisher kids, soldiers and action heros. However a flock of little red roosters, promoting the Red Rooster Cafe that will be opening soon in Enterprise (at the former site of Enterprise/Davis Cafe), won the heart of the judges, winning not only the the 6-8-year old costume category, but the grand prize of a bicycle given away by Coca Cola Distributing.
