With the daytime temperature hovering in the 90s and the evening temperature in the 80s, Crestline’s 45th annual Jamboree Days will be remembered as one hot affair, in more ways than one.
The hot 64-unit parade kicked off in Top Town Crestline at 11 a.m. on Saturday, July 1 and wound down around 1 p.m. at the western edge of Lake Gregory. Scores of hot food and merchandise vendors lined the two-mile-long parade route.
Following the parade, families spent the afternoon shopping, dining and enjoying beach and playground activities. Adding to the excitement was the evening’s hot fireworks extravaganza, viewed by thousands at Lake Gregory. Sunday, July 2 provided more hot weather for families to enjoy more shopping, dining and fishing or beach activities, while many spent Monday at a community picnic with relay races and other family-friendly activities in the Meadow at San Moritz Bay on the east end of Lake Gregory.
