Kelly Collins parade file photo

The Cinnabar Mountain Rendezvous parade gets started with Grant County Search and Rescue volunteer Kelly Collins leading the colorful entries in Mt. Vernon in this file image from May 23, 2015.

Seventy-two-year-old Kelly Collins has seen and done a great deal over the course of his time in Grant County.

Nowadays, Collins can be seen driving an old Suburban with a sign in the windshield urging anybody he passes to “eat beef.”
