The following is a great article written
about the Donut Parade by Ed Haag
of Washington CEO, August 2002:
A Spokane Icon Under Siege, Again

Citizens of a community don’t always consciously select cultural icons. Rather, for better or worse, icons are usually those things that most significantly reflect a culture.

So it is with Spokane, Spokane Valley and doughnuts. When it was first announced the Spokane Valley was selected as the site of the first Krispy Kreme doughnut shop in eastern Washington, some residents in Spokane proper cast envious glances east. But for most doughnut aficionados, the legendary chain in Spokane would be redundant at best.

What can a city do with two doughnut icons anyway? Since October 12, 1968, Darrell and Kathryn Jones have been selling thousands of doughnuts and maple bars at the Donut Parade, their Gonzaga District establishment.

Darrell, who still hand-crafts the delicacies even though his daughter now officially runs the operation, says the Donut Parade will be making donuts long after Krispy Kreme is a distant memory.

“At one time, Winchell’s had eight stores in Spokane. Now there are none,” he says, dropping a batch of old-fashioned doughnuts into the fryer, “the same goes for Dunkin’ Donuts.”

Perhaps the Donut Parade remains busy after 37 years because it still produces a product equal in taste and size to the original. Recently, a friend from Los Angeles demanded I stop at the Donut Parade before dropping him off at the airport. Inside sources at the airport says this happens all the time.

Still, the competition between the two shops appears to be building. The same source says that airport employees are now starting to see few passengers carrying boxes of Krispy Kreme doughnuts onto planes.

Chris being interviewed about Augustus Gladstone's dissappearance.
Augustus Gladstone believes he's immortal. Squatting in an abandoned hotel in Portland, he shares colorful tales of his 150 year existence. From his travels across America during the depression, to befriending Andy Warhol, to seeing the 1900 Paris Expo, Augustus charms the film crew who discovered him on You Tube. Eventually Augustus sets out to find his only living descendant: Lucky Gladstone. His sojourn causes the crew to question their responsibility to Augustus, their subject. The Immortal Augustus Gladstone is about myth, mortality, and a film about film making.
