Tots from the Burlingame Mothers’ Club will lead this year’s parade. Kasper the Duck, a rescued Pekin Raune white duck adopted from the Peninsula Humane Society & SPCA, will serve as Grand Marshal, wearing a tuxedo.
This year, for the first time, local schools are invited to compete in a special “Best School Float” contest.
