Upon arrival, one representative for each entry, family, or group must check-in to pay and receive final instructions. After check-in, go immediately to assigned line up position. Line up assignments will not be given out prior to check-in on parade day. We reserve the right to make parade position adjustments as needed. Everyone must be in place no later than 5:20pm.


The route is just three-tenths of a mile in length to allow younger kids to participate.Parade participants will exit the Santa Fe Depot parking lot to the North, turning West onto E. Broadway Street. The Parade will proceed across Caddo Street, down E. Broadway to Mill Street. Then turn left (south) onto Mill Street and continue to Paradise Alley. At that point the parade will enter the Paradise Alley parking lot gathering in the demo/games area of the 2019 Cowboy Way Jubilee’s Kids’ Korral.


The Parade is approximately three-tenths of a mile in length (so the little ones can participate) and is expected to last about 30 minutes, depending on the number of participants. Every participant, friends, and family are invited to join in the free campfire style Sing-a-long following the conclusion of the Cowboy Way Heroes Parade.
