Here we see Sadie, Sophie, Duncan and Cammie after they came in second place in the race!.
However, the folks on Victoria Avenue have traditionally competed for the fun of it, and get all the neighbors involved. I think that's such a great idea.
I also love the bright colors! It sounds like the kids had a lot of fun. Last year they got a plaque for best bed and costumes, so they put forth their best efforts to do it again this year.
My friend Desiree supplied these wonderful pictures of the races, as well as some photos of the historical buildings of the older part of Gresham where she lives.

It's no longer used as a church.
She further writes, "I love the architecture! Our little historic downtown is still very Victorian and filled with wonderful small businesses and sidewalk cafes."
Gresham is located in Multnomah County, Oriegon, in the western United States, immediately east of Portland. It was named after the American Civil War General and Postmaster General, Walter Quinton Gresham. It's currently the fourth largest city in Oregon.

Desiree says their blooms herald the end of summer.
Back to the races:

You go, girls!
Sounds like it was a lot of fun. Again, a big hearty thank-you to Desiree for sharing this very colorful event - and a little bit of her hometown - with all of us.
