WENATCHEE — More than 30 entries — including horses, goats and a drag-racing Jeep — swelled the usual ranks of military personnel and vehicles to make Monday’s midday march one of the biggest Veterans Day Parades here in recent years.

“We don’t know how many entries there’ll be,” laughed parade coordinator Dan Heimbecker, past commander of Wenatchee American Legion Post 10. “I’ll be way up at the front of the parade, and they’ll just keep joining at the rear. That’s the fun part of this event — you never quite know what you’ll get.”
