SOAP LAKE — Hundreds lined Main Street in Soap Lake Saturday for the Centennial Suds 'n Sun parade, celebrating 100 years of the city's history along with the nation's birthday.

Led by an American Legion Color Guard, dozens of classic cars, floats and parade-goers passed through the streets, tossing candy to children, highlighting local groups like the Stardust Cowgirls Drill Team and promoting election campaigns.

Riders on bikes decked in pinwheels handed leis to children, the Miss Moses Lake Roundup Rodeo Queen waved to crowds from atop her steed, and women with the Columbia Basin Roller Derby skated down the streets.

The parade lasted for about an hour before emcee Keith Dolge thanked all those who attended or supported the event.
