Colmo del Rodeo Parade 2017

Date: July 15, 2017

The California Rodeo's 2017 Colmo del Rodeo Parade, presented by Star Market, will take place on Saturday July 15th at 8pm in Old Town Salinas. The Kiddie Kapers Parade will once again precede the Colmo Parade starting at 6:30pm.

History of the Colmo del Rodeo Parade

The Colmo Parade will grace the streets of Old Town Salinas and commemorate what was once the greatest parade of the West! As the California Rodeo was first produced in 1911, so was the first informal night parade. The parade was organized by local townsfolk, and included decorated automobiles that would drive down Main Street Salinas to wrap up Big Week festivities. Later in 1913 the parade was formalized. At this time the “Colmo del Rodeo” was recognized as the largest and greatest night-lighted parade west of the Mississippi. Sadly, after the 1985 Big Week, the Colmo was eliminated from Rodeo activities, though a few years later in 1987 it was brought back and was a part of the Saturday horse parade. The parade was such a huge success in 2010 when it was revived for the 100th Anniversary of the Rodeo that this will be the eighth consecutive year of holding the parade again.
