Pride in the Park

Pride Parade

On Saturday, August 20th the lineup of floats starts at 9:45 at the County Court parking lot on Albright.

The parade begins at 10:45 and will arrive at Kit Carson Park at 11:45. Pride in the Park begins at Noon.

This will be the third year we parade through town. It is a small town affair. Look for a stream of old trucks, hot cars and a ton of colorful people walking the parade route from the County Courthouse to Kit Carson Park. If you want to participate, show up in the courthouse parking lot on Saturday and pitch in with the decoration. If you would rather watch, line the side of the street and cheer just before noon.
