Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta District The Uthbridge Herald Local news SECOND SECTION July 1974 Pages 11 to 20 Whoop-Up parade '74 best in years Imaginative colorful native riders and 12 bands with plenty of oompah were the makings of a winner at Monday's Whoop-Up Days parade. Crowds were standing six deep at some points along the route and not a few of those thousands classed this year's parade as one of Lethbridge's best. Dull grey skies offered no more than threats during the hour long passing of the caravan of color. the sultry afternoon was probably easier on parade viewers than a boiling sun. Entries drawing some of the loudest applause were the Magrath Cardston Marching Band and the Carlsberg brewery wagon.

The last four entries were so tardy that some people along the route began to disperse before they came into view. Whoop-Up Days parade might have been called a tribute to the RCMP centen- nial. Floats exhibited variations on that theme. The RCMP United Grain Growers and the entry from Medicine Kat offered attractive salutes to the force. Among the annual favorites with parade goers were the Shriners and the riders from the Peigan Band. The Fort Macleod Band offered one of the best drum ensembles in the entourage. Pharley life size and lively came bounding along the street with the Winter Games float. He drew a cheer from the crowd when he hopped over to the curb and gave a policeman a hug. Some of the youngsters had their decorated bikes shining like but it was the precarious advance of the aging penny farthing that drew the cheers and a bouncy two wheeler that attracted the laughter. The 12 bands in the parade the Southern Alberta Pipe Band from Medicine the Magrath Cardston the Lethbridge Collegiate Institute the Medicine Hat Police Boys the Alberta All Girls Show the Edmonton All Girls Junior Regina Kiwanis Calgary Safety Round-Up Edmonton Sealandair the Regina Police Boys the Coaldale Band and the Queens Royal Irish Hussars from the British army stationed in Ger- many. All didn't pass with perfec- tion. One rock band was struck dumb halfway through the route when its equipment blew a fuse. There was a seven minute pit stop at a service station along the way after one auto overheated and as the event closed and the crowd went its one entry remained. The stall- ed remains of a 1913 car just refused to cross the finish line.
