Parade-goers with eager faces and smiles watch the Fourth of July parade in Arboles on July 1. The parade consisted of a veterans’ float celebrating all branches of the armed forces, classic cars, fire trucks from the Los Pinos Fire Protection District, a barrel train and water guns spraying cool bursts of water on those watching the parade. After the parade, many gathered at the TARA Community Center for ice cream and refreshments. Due to The SUN’s Fourth of July printing schedule, photos from Pagosa Springs’ celebration will be printed next week.
