2018 Pincher Creek Rodeo Parade and pancake breakfast

Local council members serving breakfast
Toni Lucas - The 2018 Pincher Creek Rodeo Parade was held Saturday, August 18, after the Humane Society Pancake Breakfast. The pancake breakfast was hosted by councillors from both the Town and MD.  The parade featured 'Chose Your Own Adventure' as the theme. The Chamber of Commerce hosts the parade every year. Parade organizer and Chamber Administrator Ola Crook said, "There were some great ideas on the theme. The floats were really awesome this year." Even the smoke of the local fires hanging in the air did not deter the crowds.

The Parade started with the children participants. These kids took the theme seriously. There were cowboys and guides, dinosaurs and veterinarians, unicyclists and rollerbladers. These forerunners were a little speedy, so those that lined the streets had to wait a few moments for the Legion, RCMP and dignitaries who followed.

There were floats, cars, horses, farm equipment, businesses and individuals, and so much more. Near the end of the parade the local Pincher Creek Emergency Services finished the parade with shiny vehicles and the occasional siren.
