A few of the Ashcroft Rodeo Parade committee members

Midway rides added to Parade Weekend

The parade committee is bringing West Coast Amusements to Ashcroft.

June 20 and 21 are shaping up to become a spectacular weekend for the people of Ashcroft & District! Since the 2015 Ashcroft Rodeo will not be taking place (for this year only), the Ashcroft Rodeo Parade Committee has been planning a fun time for all of you!

The Ashcroft Rodeo Parade will kick off downtown on Saturday morning as usual. At 11 am, a wizard and a smoke-breathing dragon will lead the “Magic & Mystique” parade down Brink St. and back along Railway St., featuring dozens of floats, Rodeo horses, drummers, can-can dancers, magical creatures of all sorts, and bands. We are hoping to have the Seniors’ seating area again, and Joris Ekering will be announcing the parade as it goes by.

As soon as the parade ends, there will be a “Show in the Park” at Heritage Place Park, featuring some of the parade entrants, some concessions, and lots of photo ops.

Once the show is over, everyone can go next door to the area between the park and the Purity Feeds Building (the bottle depot) for fun at the carnival!! The parade committee has sponsored West Coast Amusements to bring a midway to Ashcroft for June 20-21. Watch for posters and colouring contests.

Also, the Ladies Auxillary will be serving their famous Baron of Beef at the Legion. Homecoming weekend will be full of action for everyone!  See you there!
