The first horse parade made its way down Main Street Salinas in 1911. It was led by James R. Hebbron and consisted of a sixteen piece band and about 100 horses ridden by local ranchers. In 1938 the parade showcased a record 1,000 horses! Today, the parade consists of mounted Sheriff’s Posse, competitors, various riding groups, color guards, drill teams, Junior & Senior riders and Charro and Charra riding groups. The horse parade is a tradition that you definitely want to experience. Entries are taken each year for participants from near and far.
 
In 2010, two mini-parades were added to the Big Week Festivities: one on Thursday on East Alisal Street and one on Friday on North Main Street.
