19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
A parade of one to continue 144 years of tradition during Covid-19

In her seven decades plus of life, Dolores Larrigan has not missed a single Ione Homecoming Parade and the Covid-19 pandemic would not stop her. So in place of the 144th annual parade, the Ione Fire Department held their annual Processional Training Day with its livery of fire engines and trucks with the assistance of the Ione Police Department to at least pretend there was a parade this year.
