The Fortuna Rodeo boasts the "best parade north of
Pasadena." according to Hal Hummel, one of the parade organizers. It is
free to enter the parade and all are welcome. The parade features a Wells
Fargo stagecoach or Budweiser wagon, the Marine color guard, the rodeo
band and many other entries. "We've got kids, all sorts of organizations,
floats sponsored by local businesses and much more." he said.
We can't all be in the parade, somebody's got to sit on the curb and applaud as they floats go by. To see the parade in person, come into town early, because Main Street, Fortuna Boulevard and the neighboring blocks are completely shut down at 11:30. You will either be stuck in slow-moving traffic a mile away or you may have to park a dozen or more blocks away.
If you can't make it into town, it'll be shown live on the FortunaCam.
