The Lake Country Cruisers Car Club joined the Chamber “Cruise Night” parade by the dozens, with a showy display of classic vehicles.
This unique entry honored the essential workers during the COVID-19 outbreak—from nurses to grocery workers to mail carriers and store employees. Dressed appropriately for the theme, Davis Johnson as a policeman, Phoebe Johnson, nurse, and Logan Olson, fireman.
The three are grandsons of car club member Alan Johnson, who decorated his Viking orange 1985 Chevy truck for the occasion.
This big orange rig was appropriately decorated for the downtown Pelican parade, entered by the Ziebell family—honoring Matty Ziebell, Class of 2020. The Ziebell unit was the winner of the Pelican Rapids Areas Chamber of Commerce parade.
The Coldwell Banker Crew were on hand at the main street office for the parade. From left, Linda Stoll, Barb Grunewald and Trish Satter
Scott Richardson, Rapids Brake and Alignment, drove the parade in his race car.
The Dakota Smiles crew was in full spectator mode.

In the year of COVID-19, the May 21 parades at the school and in downtown Pelican Rapids might be among the few public processions in the area.
