01/09/2014 – National Western Stockshow Rodeo Parade @ 17th Street – Denver

The National Western Stock Show Kick-Off Parade started at Union Station and went down 17th St. in downtown Denver. The parade was filled with horse mounted cowboys, cowgirls, Rodeo Queens & Princesses, the Wells Fargo stage coach, remote controlled cars, as well as live heard of steer, the CSU Ram, tractors and public officials. The crowd was in giddy-up mode and yeehaws were heard along the route as children collected candy. Denver couldn't have asked for better weather for this annual tradition that starts of the festivities of the National Western Stock Show from January 11-26th, 2014.
