Main Street Parade kicks off Ramona’s rodeo Saturday
Saturday, May 17—Most residents and visitors lined the shady side of the street for the Main Street Parade this morning. Across the street, some braved the sun, but others chose what shade they could find.
Children and adults waved and applauded as the parade entrants rode or walked from 13th to Fifth streets, and announcers staggered along the parade route kept everyone aware of what group, business or organization was passing by.
Leading the parade were two Boy Scouts carrying the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3783 banner followed by Ramona veterans from wars from World War II, Korea and Vietnam to Desert Storm, Iraq and Afghanistan.
The parade, which lasted about an hour and a quarter, kicked off Ramona Rodeo Saturday.
