This is the once famous Evanston, Illinois Independence Day parade. I don't know how they did it (I was fairly young as you can see in the opening) but they brought in the entire Disney enterprise that year, leading with Walt Disney, followed by the Disney characters, Fess Parker, the guy who played Johnny Tremain, and a slate of Mouseketeers from the Micky Mouse Fan Club. This includes Jimmy, Annette, Roy, Karen and Cubby! The film was all captured on my parents standard 8mm. There were also some more local floats featured: the Mayflower, Little America (Antarctica), and the politically incorrect Hartzell Street Minstrels (I assume named after Hartzell Street in Evanston). Also found of shots of my family and my brother picking at his nose. Running time is 3:16 © Copyright 2011 Bruce Bruemmer.
