Not a single cloud in sight as the hot, heavy days of the previous week lifted for the 58th Annual Huntington Heritage Day Parade Saturday, June 18.

The owner/operators of Trend Boutique & Décor, Kathy Dill and Kari Lahr, staked their claim in front of their store with family members Josh and Julie Lahr, while children of the family, Ava 13, and Grant 10 sat on the curb in the sunshine.
