Spirits and temperatures were high for Saturday’s Corn Palace Stampede Rodeo parade. This year’s theme was “Celebrating 40 Years of Cowboys, Kids and Country.”
Rodeo committee chairman Jim Mikimins estimated a parade attendance of nearly 10,000 at the yearly event.
“It was wonderful,” he said. In addition to fun, the event provided a solid economic boost. Families come to town to enjoy the parade and rodeo and that benefits all Mitchell business, he said.
