In A Day, Canines, Quackers And Camels


Wagon Days isn’t just about wagons. In the wake of the Beaver Creek Fire, fans of Wagon Days got to enjoy dogs, ducks, pancakes and even a young camel. Big crowds on Sun Valley Road and Main Street in Ketchum roared with appreciative applause during the parade on Saturday. Clockwise from left: Sun Valley Co. owner Carol Holding, right, and Sun Valley Co. Director of Development Wally Huffman, left, wave to the crowd from an open carriage during the parade. State Rep. Steve Miller, R-Fairfield, left, and Lt. Gov. Brad Little flip pancakes Saturday morning during the Papoose Club’s annual Pancake Breakfast. “Dude,” a 6-month-old two-humped camel, a crowd favorite, walks the parade route. Jenine Williams, the camel’s owner, said, “Everybody is so friendly, nice and considerate that we love the Sun Valley parade and think that it is the best there is.” A pair of parade onlookers got into the street to show off their patriotic outfits. Four Forest Service firefighters walk through central Ketchum behind a U.S. Forest Service float featuring Smokey Bear. That entry generated the most applause.
