November 16, 2022
La Conner loves a winner. And the community is always up for a parade.
Townspeople and tourists alike enjoyed both Saturday afternoon, turning out to honor the arrival of La Conner High School's 2B volleyball champions from Yakima. The day before they secured the program's seventh state title.
Crowds gathered at Gilkey Square and lined First Street to greet the team as it rode through town shortly after 12 p.m. on Hook & Ladder fire trucks, feted with music from the pep band and cheered on with repeated sounds of and paper sprays from confetti poppers.
It was a festive scene.
