Kicking off the 2011 Puyallup Fair is the annual Puyallup Fair Western Rodeo Parade and Cattle Drive. Join us at Pioneer Park downtown for pre-parade music at 9 a.m. The parade will begin at 10 a.m. on Friday, September 9 along Meridian Street.
Cowboys herding 60 steers start off the festivities. Following the cattle is this year’s grand marshal, Brittney Henry, Miss Washington, and a Puyallup-area resident. A variety of equestrian drill teams, draft horse hitches, marching bands, great musical entertainment, royalty, and cowboys on horseback follow. The parade will also feature costume characters and Puyallup Fair free entertainment.
After the parade the excitement is carried right into the Fair gates with FREE admission until noon by bringing a canned food item for the Puyallup Food Bank.
