Parade day is an excellent Casper celebration to usher in the official start of the Central Wyoming Fair and P.R.C.A. rodeo. It's such a big attraction and party that parts of downtown will be closed all morning.

Bars will have drink and food specials, bands, and big 'Parade Day' parties.

Navigating has been challenging the last couple of years, thanks to construction downtown. Although the construction is outside downtown this year, it may still cause issues for paradegoers.

Parking can also be an issue for many. The public parking garage, public lots, and streets away from the parade route are good choices.

The official start line is at the corner of Yellowstone Highway/2nd Street & Ash Street. The route continues on 2nd to Beech, heads south to Collins, west to Center, and then wraps up just past City Park, south of downtown.

There will be a special viewing area for parade spectators with disabilities at the corner of Beech and Collins and a handicapped parking and viewing area at the corner of Collins and Center.

Public restrooms and porta potties are also marked on the map for when nature calls.
