With aviation as its theme this year, Burbank on Parade kicked off Saturday with a flyover by five helicopters followed by other fliers, marching bands and flight-themed floats. The rain that hit the L.A. area Friday had moved on, and the almost 100 parade entries traveled down Olive Avenue under sunny skies. One of the most popular entries came near the end of the parade, with about 25 vintage cars from the Road Kings club. Ashley Nesbit said the cars are always her favorite part, along with the Burbank/Burroughs Alumni Band.

John Dilbert said of the DUIs logged between Aug. 2 and Aug. 8.   The summer weather, students anticipating the start of the school year and the upcoming Labor Day holiday likely contributed to the unusually high number, he added.   There was also an increase in traffic accidents, he said.

A flock of wild, squawking parrots has decided to nest in Burbank, residents say. At sunrise and sunset, about 100 of them swoop along a path roughly following Verdugo Avenue, creating quite a disturbance. "It's like this noise," said Burbank resident Cindy Brown.
