Spooner Rodeo Parade
~Come see the UW Marching band & Bucky Badger in 2017!~
Saturday, July 8th, is a big day for the city of Spooner, spectators line the streets along Highway 63 for the annual Spooner Rodeo Parade. Thousands of people gather for this parade, commonly referred to as one of the best parades in Northwest Wisconsin. Over 100 parade entries make for a fun time for the whole family. You'll see rodeo clowns, royalty, old cowboys (and some young ones too!), firetrucks, antique cars, military vehicles and so much more! Again in 2017, come down to watch the UW-Marching Band perform! This highly sought-after marching band will also be performing a "5th Quarter Act" downtown following the parade.
Where to watch:
The parade route begins on Highway 63 (River Street) in front of Sam Hick's and proceeds South on 63 through the downtown, ending at Vine Street (Nick's Family Restaurant). Many folks put out chairs early in the morning along Highway 63. While the parade officially begins at 12:00 p.m., folks will begin lining the streets much earlier, so be sure to head downtown well ahead of time to find your perfect spot!
How to participate:
We welcome parade entries beginning in mid-February. Parade entries range from horseback riders to classic cars, military vehicles to clowns, and so much more!
