The enthusiasm across Alaska is unlike any seen for a candidate for president in years. Even in Homer, where liberals control city government, the Trump support is so strong that another parade is planned.
On Sunday, at 1:30 pm, organizers welcome parade participants to meet at deep water port on the Homer Spit, at the end of Freight Dock Road. They’re encouraging people to decorate their trucks and vans — large work trucks welcome — and join in the convoy that will drive from the Spit, down to Homer Bypass Road, up Pioneer Street, then out East End Road until Kachemak Drive, and then back to the base of the Spit.
From the Spit, they’ll go back through town and up to the top of Baycrest, and finish at the lot next to the Homer Maintenance Station (Maintainance Rd.) The group has permission to use the Dibble Creek yard for overflow.
“From there you are free to go wherever you like. Some people will be going back out to Lands End to continue the party. This is a peacful parade to support President Donald Trump, and all are welcome. Trump flags/signs are encouraged but you can still be in the parade without one,” organizers said.
This Parade is primarily for large vehicles, but smaller vehicles are welcome and will follow the large vehicles.
