Our Cowboy Parade is one of the largest, motor less parades in the country and always a family favorite. Entrants over the years include the LaPlata County Mounted Patrol (who traditionally serve as our color guard), beautiful 6-up Belgian draft teams, historic wagons and coaches, Texas Longhorns, young buckaroos on stick horses and fashionable ladies & gents dressed in period costume.


Our 2014 Wagon Master Parade Sponsor is Boot Barn. Thanks to Boot Barn and their wonderful staff for supporting this much loved event – look for them as they ride by in the Wagon Master wagon!



The Grand Marshal will be Francis Hotter who is 91 years old.  She will be escorted by brother Lawrence Huntington who is 96 years old.  The Hotter and Huntington families have been ranching in La Plata County since the 1880's.

Jonas Grushkin of Grushkin Photography will be the parade photographer this year. He will be located right before the announcer’s stand. Be sure to check out his website for your entry photo as well as other photographs of all the morning activities. www.grushkin.com

to help out on parade day.
