Note: These 2013 Electric Light Parade photos were taken by 14 year old Supai Junior High School student Chloe Mori Baker. Chloe began practicing her photographic technique at the 2009 Electric Light Parade at age 10. She volunteers her skills each year for the City of Phoenix as the Electric Light Parade's Official Youth Photographer at the Friday night judging.  Chloe's Uncle, and photographic mentor Kelly Baker, volunteered his photographs on the following page as well during the Saturday night parade.
