horsesinparadeThe Dale Hansen & Ed Perine Memorial Parade has it all – local children’s and non-profit groups and a large selection o local mountain merchants decorating their floats to the theme of the event. Our hometown law enforcement, fire departments and ambulances always have a great time keeping the crowd on their toes with blaring sirens and honking the big horns! We have had clowns in mini-cars and clowns fashioning balloon animal masterpieces for the crowd. All varieties of car clubs, fancy equestrian showmanship, antique tractor collections, alpaca ranches and brave knights jousting in the street have graced the parade route. The Fiesta Days Dale Hansen & Ed Perine Memorial Parade truly is an entertaining spectacle of our local community spirit.
