Blast from the Past: 1941 – Parade Float

In September 1941, Malheur NWR entered a parade float in the Harney County Fair parade. The float itself is a duck cage. The ducks had been banded prior to and were released during the parade. It was awarded 1st place in the section representing government and municipal floats. This marked the 3rd year in a row that they won first place. It’s probably a hard act to beat. I doubt city hall had birds to release. And who’s driving the tank?
