On 17 September 2016 XXXIX, 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 First Son Mark Baugh, driving his pickup truck, along with his lady Danielle. In addition, The First Couple was joined by Chief Constable Alexis and First Granddaughters Jade and Lyla. This is the seventh time Molossia has been represented in this parade, referred to as a "fixture" of Dayton Valley Days by the parade staff. The parade is attended annually by the President and First Lady as a part of their commitment to Dayton, the nearest community to Molossia; Molossia and the First Couple are very well-known in the area.

The parade began at 10:39 AM MST, near the courthouse in Dayton, and followed Main Street and then Pike Street. 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 and First Lady. It was and always is 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 AM MST, the event was over, a very short but pleasant parade. Nevertheless, the informality and brevity is always 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 it is certain that the First Couple will repeat this entertaining event every year.

Parade Ready.
