Some of the children who lived along Lewiston’s Ninth Avenue decided to have a bike parade one day, as shown in this photo from 1951. Those pictured include (from left) Monte Lukenbill, Tommy Wagner, unknown, Judi Weldon and Kay “Honey” Sturges. A lot of the neighborhood’s mothers pitched in to make the event special, with costumed children riding bicycles with colorfully decorated wheels, according to Bill Henley, who submitted this photo. Henley was born and raised in Lewiston and now lives in Marysville, Wash.
