With aviation as its theme this year, Burbank on Parade kicked off Saturday with a flyover by five helicopters followed by other fliers, marching bands and flight-themed floats.
The rain that hit the L.A. area Friday had moved on, and the almost 100 parade entries traveled down Olive Avenue under sunny skies.
One of the most popular entries came near the end of the parade, with about 25 vintage cars from the Road Kings club.
Ashley Nesbit said the cars are always her favorite part, along with the Burbank/Burroughs Alumni Band. She was impressed with the agility of the drill team members.
“[They’re] still cheerleading with the band. It’s great,” the 19-year-old said.
Ajinkya Pawar was visiting his sister, Rupa Pawar, who lives in Burbank, and the two were enjoying the festivities.
Their parade favorites were the Southwest Airlines entry, where walkers wore body suits that created the shape of a mini-jet around them, and a visit from a costumed Bugs Bunny riding atop a fire truck from Warner Bros.
