18 September 2010 XXXIII
Khamsin Molossia News

On 18 September 2010, His Excellency, The President and First Lady of Molossia appeared in the Dayton Valley Days Parade, which is located in the town of Dayton, about 10 Imperial Nortons from Molossia. The parade is part of the annual Dayton Valley Days celebration, held each year in that town. His Excellency and The First Lady were accompanied by Sam McCord, driving her pride and joy RZR all-terrain vehicle. This is the second time Molossia has been represented in this parade. The parade was chosen as an event because Molossia and our President were featured in the Dayton newspaper two years ago, and it was believed that the crowd would thus be familiar with our nation. This proved to be quite correct.

The parade began at 10:39 AM MST, near the courthouse in Dayton, and followed Pike Street and then Main Street in that town. All along Main Street were vendor booths, set up for the celebration. In addition, there was a decent crowd of spectators, there to enjoy the parade. The crowd was very pleasant and friendly, smiling and waving to The President. It was an amazing, enjoyable experience. Shortly after the vendor booths ended along the route, so did the crowd, and shortly after that, so did the parade. By 11:10 MST, the event was over, a very short but pleasant parade. Nevertheless, the informality and brevity were a welcome change from the much more formal and grandiose Nevada Day Parade, and the Molossian contingent was quite pleased. A fine time was had by all, and there are plans in the works to repeat this entertaining parade every year.

Waving At The Crowd.
