SLIDESHOW: Black Diamond Labor Day parade

The Black Diamond Labor Day parade avoided the rain with a 10 a.m. start and plenty of entries for the people on the street to enjoy.

The parade began with the presentation of flags while Jessica Eames sang the Star Spangle Banner from the announcer's platform.

People attending the Labor Day activities had to dodge rain drops all weekend, but it did not stop the fun, which included Doggie Day events, a pie backing contest, a pie eating and watermelon eating contest.
