Race Memorial & Cacklefest® Parade


To open the show the the Inductees were introduced leading off with Grand Marshall Kelly Brown. All were riding in some really cool hotrods.








Prior to the start of the cacklecar parade it is a tradition to read the names of those who have left us since the 2017 CHRR. Each year the list seems to get longer and this was no exception. It is a sobering reminder of why we have these reunions in the first place. They were read with respect by Bob Frey to a hushed crowd.





The parade was led off by Roger "Riceman" Lee in his Jim Brissette and Kelly Brown Herbert Cams re-creation.
