Rooftop Rodeo Parade

Date: July 06, 2016

The theme of the 2016 parade:

"How 'Bout Those Broncos!"

Kicking off rodeo week festivities will be the traditional Rooftop Rodeo Parade on Wednesday, July 6th, 2016 at 10:30 a.m., in downtown Estes Park. Bands, horseback riders, draft hitches, floats, unique automobiles, rodeo royalty, clubs, organizations, traveling bands, trick riders, clowns and more have added a distinctively fun time and western flavor to Estes Park as the colorful entourage makes its way along Elkhorn Avenue to the Stanley Park Fairgrounds. Previous parades have featured entries from as far away as California. Come enjoy the day in Estes Park and help us kick off rodeo week by enjoying the Rooftop Rodeo Parade!

Parade Marshal:

The Estes Park Rooftop Rodeo is proud to announce its Grand Marshal for this year’s Parade, which is scheduled for Wednesday, July 6 at 10:30 A.M. The Kershner Family will collectively be Grand Marshal, representing the legacy of their father, Bernie. Bernie and his family have been longtime supporters of the Rooftop Rodeo; when Bernie passed away last month, his family became the obvious choice to be honored at the Parade. Bernie was the Grand Marshal in the Rooftop’s 2011 Parade. There will be a special memorial to Bernie at Wednesday night’s Rooftop Rodeo, and that night has been deemed The Kershner Family Night at the Rodeo.

The Rooftop Rodeo is also proud to announce that Big 97.9 radio personalities Scott and Sadie will be announcing the Parade in addition to broadcasting their morning radio show live from Estes Park on Parade day.
