SAN ANGELO – Every year the annual San Angelo Stock Show & Rodeo opens on the first weekend of February, right behind it is its twin sibling—the 87th San Angelo Rodeo Parade which kicked up its heels this morning at 10 a.m. on Concho Avenue located in historic downtown San Angelo.

The Rodeo Parade always draws a huge attendance crowd due to is varied entries of four categories: wagon/buggy, antiques/vehicles, marching and riding participants. 

Among the 100 parade entries in the float category was Relay for Life of Tom Green County. The wagon/ buggy section was represented by Wells Fargo; in the antiques/vehicles was the San Angelo Fire Department. 

The Fort Concho National Historic Landmark was one group assigned to the marching section. And in the final grouped pairing known as riding section was Charros de Rancho Cabrera.

The parade route began at Irving and Concho Street, proceeded east to Oakes, turned left of Oakes to Twohig, then turned left of Twohig, proceeded to Chadbourne, then right on Chadbourne and proceeded to College Street, then left of College Street, continued to Irving, turned left on Irving to Beauregard, turned right on Beauregard proceeded to Randolph, then left on Randolph, and finally proceeded to River Drive before dismissal.
