So what does a baseball game and a parade have in common? It was all part of our welcome to Baker City, OR.
We received an enthusiastic welcome into Baker City; so enthusiastic that there was a crowd waiting to take us immediately to our first destination, the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center. But before we get to that check out what else they did!
Dan got to throw the opening pitch at the Team Rudi Wooden Bat Baseball tournament.
Queen Codie Lagao of the Haines Stampede and her girls rode in to welcome us!
Our first glimpse at the Historic Downtown Baker City!
What’s a parade without riding in a horse-drawn carriage?! Even the boyscouts and the shriners joined in the parade.
Talk about making a grand entrance!
