Rout 66 Parade

  • Maxwell participated in the 19th Annual Route 66 Parade and helped celebrate the city's 57th Birthday.

    DHS Band played "Celebrating the Great Outdoors" which was the theme of Duarte's 19th annual Route 66 Parade that was held on Saturday, Sept. 27, 2014. The annual Duarte City Picnic and Classic Car Show at Royal Oaks Park immediately followed the event from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

    Mary Barrow, owner of Barrow Hoffman Public Relations served as this year's Community Grand Marshal. Barrow has also served the community as an energetic volunteer including serving as the founding member of both Duarte Community Access Television (DCTV) and the Duarte Festival of Authors in addition to membership in various other local organizations.

    The parade started at 10 am beginning at the northeast corner of Huntington Dr. and Cotter St. and proceeded east along one mile of Duarte’s historic Route 66.
    The parade featured antique and classic cars, marching bands, equestrian units, floats including the Duarte High School Marching Band and Color Guard, and your very own Maxwell Mountain Lions! Our Superintendent, Dr. Terry Nichols, and our Assistant Superintendent of Personnel and Student Services, Miriam Fox, announced the parade!

    Following the parade, the fun continued at the City Picnic. Thank you to those who visited the DUSD Booth and got your picture taken with our school mascots.
