Mayor Henry Manayan

*** Happy 4th of July ***
From Me, Sparky, Elvis Presley, the Milpitas Fire Department, and the Milpitas Historical Society, with our 70 year old fire truck, Leapin' Lena behind us.
My fantasy come true! Got to ride in the historic fire truck in the parade and ring the bell the whole way, met Elvis Presley (really Ron Short), and got a bunch of cute firemen and a big dog to get my photo taken with!

Sparky, the fire dog, and ' aboard Leapin' Lena, the first fire truck of the Milpitas Fire Department, built in 1932.

Local equestrians with decorated horses joined the parade behind Lena.

Did the Ballet Folkérico kids even know who Elvis was?
These kids learn and perform hispanic dances in the area.
 
 
Lots of Mustangs in the parade as these cars were once made at the Ford Factory in Milpitas.
 
 
City of Milpitas' float.
