Ferndale business promises a colorful entry in the Old Settlers Grand Parade

Looking for 35 to 55 volunteers to walk in the parade.

Northwest Connections partnered with Ferndale’s own Celebrations Balloon Company to do something different for this year’s Lynden Farmer’s Day Parade. Celebrations Balloon Company Owner Sharon Patrick assembled colorful balloon pole bouquets and bursts for participants to carry. The entry received an award and a lot of attention from parade attendees.

Patrick says the Lynden parade was a trial run for what she is planning for the Whatcom Old Settlers Grand Parade on Saturday, July 28th, in Ferndale.

The City recently acquired a new tool - the Drone Ranger. Here's one of its maiden voyages, flying over our recent Summer of Fun event Glow in the Dark Croquet. #FerndaleParks ... See MoreSee Less

Sweet! What kind of drone?

I think it's super awesome!

I always forget that park exists.

Is it going to be flying around all of ferndale?

Of course it's not legal to fly there, which is a problem. No fly zone!

very cool! I love drones. I need to fix mine.

Nice flying, Riley. You need a call sign...Park Ranger?

Um...shouldn't it be DARK for glow in the DARK croquet??? ...but cool toy nonetheless! 😁

I really see this purchase as a irresponsible use of taxpayer money. Also isn't Ferndale with in 5 miles of a airport?

A few weeks ago this drone was flying over main street in Ferndale, VERY low to traffic and VERY distracting! Please keep it at a more respectful height. Id hate to file a claim against City of Ferndale for causing an accident by flying "their" drone to low!

Very cool! I can think of all kinds of uses for this, to help publicize events, and make cool videos about the city!

What for? Might be a nice tool for the police department. Why was money spent on this?

Did your pilot obtain a license from the FAA to operate legally?

Cool

Now we can find out who is burning garbage....

Would it be out of the question to attach guns to the drone? People need to know that Ferndale isn't messing around any longer!

Patrick is looking for 35 to 55 volunteers to walk in the Old Settlers Grand Parade. “The more walkers we have the more spectacular and amazing the parade entry,” according to Patrick. “We will have amazing over-the-top balloon backpacks, parade poles and even some balloon costumes.”

Interested participants can contact Patrick via email to Sharon@CelebrationsBalloonCompany.com. Dance, martial arts, sports and other youth groups are encouraged to contact Patrick.
