Loggers Playday Parade no more, now called Hoquiam Elks Grand Parade
The Hoquiam City Council on Monday night heard from the Chair of the parade formerly known as the Loggers Playday Parade about some what struggles they are having as Loggers Playday gets closer.
Bonnie Cable, the Chair of what is now called the Hoquiam Elks Grand Parade on Loggers’ Playday came to the Council and went over issues they are having including the new Loggers Playday shirt that has come out.
Following up their controversial yet worldwide selling “Osama Bin Loggin’” shirt from the 2011 Loggers Playday, the design printed by Jacknut Apparel in Aberdeen is once again creating a stir. Cable noted that the new design features a logger toilet plunging a Wild Olympic supporter and a toilet with the words “PARADE ROUTE” written on it.
The conflict between the Parade Board and the Playday Committee began when the Parade decided to stay with the parade route that was used when the Hoquiam River Bridge was closed. The new route has endorsed by multiple Hoquiam Officials including Mayor Jack Durney.
