Weather No Factor at Bessemer Blast

BESSEMER - The bad weather that hampered the Wakefield parade earlier in the day moved out, and spectators would remain dry for the rest of the day.

The King-Size Bessemer Fourth of July Parade once again entertained the large gathering of spectators who had come to view the great event. The parade included all the things that we all enjoy in a great parade: Honor Guards, great cars, fire engines, floats and five great bands.

The parade also included things we might not necessarily look forward to in a local parade, and that is the politicos. It seemed like there were hoards of politicians.


Slide Show

Preceding the Bessemer Fourth of July Parade, there was a fly over by by Duluth Air National Guard F16s. Following the fly over there was a “Drive Down Memory Lane” by members of the Klassic Kruisers Auto Club and other classic car owners. Participation in the event was opened to public not just club members. The Kruisers have been participating the Bessemer Parade as well as the Wakefield Parade ever since the inception of the club.

The classic cars were not the only vehicles in the parade that would appeal to boys of all ages. Tractors, buses and fire engines also took part in the parade. Immediately following the Drive by the Parade began with the Honor Guard and area veterans taking the point in the parade. View More...
