Parents, they are here to clothe us, feed us and without fail, embarrass us. Sixteen is a particularly ripe age for parental embarrassment and poor Rain Price of American Fork, Utah was no exception. It was the beginning of his sophomore school year and his first time riding the bus so in true embarrassing parent-style his dad Dale waved him off. Mortified, he begged his mom Rochelle to stop Dale from doing it again -  guess who overheard?

To Rain's dismay and Dale's delight, not only did the father decide to wave his son goodbye, he decided to send him off dressed in costume. But wait, this was not just a one-time incident, Dale dressed up every single day for 170 straight school days.

"When he did it the first day I was in shock. You don’t want to see your dad dressing up in a wedding dress, waving at you on the bus," Rain told the Metro, to which his dad responded: "I hope this lives with him for the rest of his life."

Dale became known as the 'Wave At The Bus Dad,' coming out in the most hilarious and elaborate costumes and never repeating the same look. He said he only spend around $50 the whole year and relied on friends and neighbors to loan him costume essentials. So the family could share the ridiculousness with the rest of the world, Rochelle created a blog to document all the outfits.

Rain is now all grown up at 19 and serves as a church missionary in Liberia, West Africa.

From the Little Mermaid to a blushing bride, scroll down below to some of Dale's iconic fashion moments!

Rain was embarrassed and told his mother Rochelle, ‘Mom, don’t let Dad go out there again.’ Dale overheard and accepted it as a challenge
