    • ~1974 parents day, dancing outside. Processional, hobby horse, english dancing and rapper on parrish beach, morris in the ville, rapper on sharples patio, international dancing, may pole dancing. (video)
    • ~1975 parents' day. Processional, hobby horse. Morris, english, bacca pipes in front of parrish. Morris, rapper, and english in front of the co-op. (video)
    No sound, sadly.
