the highest-scoring band in the parade competition. The band has won
every competition its entered in the past 18 months.
Thousands of residents attended the parade, which took place Saturday
along Olive Avenue between Lincoln and Lomita streets and boasted the
Powerpuff Girls of the Cartoon Network as grand marshals.
The Powerpuff Girls were joined by Bugs Bunny, Ronald McDonald, cast
members from NBC-TV's "All About Us," Danny Bonaduce of KYSR-FM (98.7),
the Burbank Burroughs Alumni Band and school bands from the Burbank
Unified School District.
Barbara Legnard-Hellman, equestrian chairwoman for the parade, said
everyone was a winner in the equestrian segment of the parade.
"Everyone won first in their respective categories, because there was
only one entry in each," Legnard-Hellman said. "We had a much smaller
turnout due to gas prices."
After the parade, trophies were handed out by Miss Burbank Grace
Calderone and Miss Teen Burbank Lynee Hastings during an awards ceremony.
Sgt. John Dilibert of the Burbank Police Department reported there
were no arrests or incidents during the parade, but he did say seven cars
were impounded Saturday between 7 and 8 a.m. on Olive, Verdugo and Orange
