Parade Route & Security
Sorry, but for safety reasons there will be no parking on the four blocks of the The Parade Route this year because Spokane Street is so narrow. The route will be blocked off with barricades and yellow caution tape. Do not follow too closely behind horses.
Community Floats will be judged at 8:30 am in the unloading area behind the school. After judging, floats will proceed to the corner of Spokane and Cedar and a Volunteer will help you merge into the parade in your correct position. Judging for Equestrians, Commercial Entries, Rodeo Royalty, Drill Teams and Marching Groups will be judged during the parade. Awards and ribbons will be given immediately after the parade in the City Park, at approximately 11:15. All CARS are encouraged to enter into the Car Show at the park where they will be judged.
