100th Annual Clovis Rodeo Parade

If you were to ask past rodeo president, Mike Spears and his sister Judy some of their favorite childhood memories, it would probably be of those countless rodeo parades they either participated in or watched growing up in Clovis. Those parades gave Mike an appreciation for the “Clovis Way of Life.” The parade continues to be a memory many of us want to share with our own families, our children and grandchildren.

The theme of this year’s parade is “Happy 100th Birthday Clovis Rodeo and Parade”. More than 200 entries in 27 different categories will wind through the streets of “Old Town Clovis” to the cheers of more than 40,000 parade fans lining the route. Whether you come for the marching bands, horse drawn vehicles, mounted groups, novelty acts or the themed floats it is certain to be worth the trip.

The town of Clovis comes out to celebrate their western heritage and recognize the numerous schools, service organizations, western riders, youth groups and businesses who come together to participate in one of the most anticipated events of Clovis Rodeo weekend.

The theme floats will compete for the $1,500 in prize money and the overall Sweepstakes Award while sharing in many fond memories of a Saturday morning on the streets of Clovis.
