SALINAS, CA, February 21, 2013 – The California Rodeo Salinas is excited to present the Colmo del Rodeo Parade for the 4th consecutive year on Saturday July 13, 2013 in Old Town Salinas. Originally revived for the 100th anniversary of the Rodeo in 2010, the parade continues to be a crowd pleaser and will help kick of ‘Big Week’ in July. The Kiddie Kapers Parade starts at 6:30pm that night and precedes the Colmo del Rodeo Parade which starts at 8pm. The combination of these two parades makes for a fun family evening for the city of Salinas. Many citizens secure their seats early on Saturday along the parade route, which starts at Salinas High School on Main Street and finishes at the Steinbeck Center in Old Town Salinas.
