With floats, bands and many other entries, the Lompoc Valley Flower Festival Parade traveled through town on Saturday morning.

The procession began at 10 a.m., departing from the corner of North H Street and East College Avenue before traveling south along H Street and then West Ocean Avenue.

Approximately 70 entries participated in the parade, with floats required to use flowers or natural materials, most of which were grown in the Lompoc Valley.

The 62nd Annual Lompoc Valley Flower Festival began Wednesday and ends Sunday with most of the activities occurring at Ryon Memorial Park, at West Ocean Avenue at South O Street.

The event includes a carnival, flower show, food booths, wine tasting, musical performances and other entertainment.

The theme of this year’s festival is “Vines, Wines and Good Times.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
