• Comanche Texas Rodeo Parade

    Neil and Dakota DudleyThe Rodeo Parade is a long standing tradition in Comanche, Texas.  Each year, Comanche residents fill the streets to celebrate our western heritage and cowboy culture.

    To get a good seat, we arrived early and crowded around our town’s square…  you can see from the photo to the left, that I arrived with two very eager spectators myself!

    Christine Perkins reported that almost 40 entries lined the streets to entertain the crowds gathered along Grand, Houston and in historic downtown, led by parade Grand Marshal Donnie McDougal.

    First up is Dairy Queen, the winner in the Local Commercial Division, featuring Curly Top in boots.

Best Out of Town Entry was Dublin Chamber, Keep Dublin Beautiful, and the Miss Dublin Float. Best Riding Club went to the Concho Chicks who also entertained the crowds at the rodeo that evening.
