The Horribles Parade was a fun-loving feature of many community celebrations in the early 1900s. For the Fourth of July 1912 Horribles Parade, these gentlemen (including the man seated on the wagon dressed as a woman) are shown with their cart of wooden wheels being pulled by the dairy cow.

For many of its early years, Lodi loved a parade. Lavish parades were traditional features of large community gatherings such as the huge Fourth of July celebrations in the early 1900s, the Tokay Carnival in 1907 and the Lodi Grape Festival for decades.
