WENATCHEE — Seated on a window-ledge along Mission Street, a mother and daughter waited for a parade to begin while murmurs from nearby families were pierced by screeching plastic trumpets.

It was the first Keyes Fibre/Dolco Youth Parade since 2019. Hilary Parker, a lifelong Wenatchee resident, has only missed a few and didn’t want to miss its return.
