  • 2019 Parade Route Change

    The City of Casper and Fair and Rodeo Parade organizers have been collaborating to establish a new route for the yearly Fair and Rodeo summer parade. An evaluation of the former route, along with business owner, citizen, and Casper Police Department feedback, showed numerous issues that had developed with the former route through the decades of growth in our community. The new route was designed with maximum safety in mind for everyone participating in, and observing the parade.
    The attached map shows the new route, its beginning and end points, and staging areas. It also shows public parking lots that are available for the spectators to utilize before, during, and after the parade event. Curbside parking will be also be available on the streets not specifically highlighted for use during the parade, but spectators should realize these areas will be heavily congested with pedestrian traffic. Spectators should make efforts to park outside the immediate area and walk in to their viewing area of choice. Spectators who are handicapped and wish to view the parade from their vehicle can utilize the designated parking area located at 222 East Collins, the old Plains Furniture parking lot.
    The main parade route and staging areas will be closed to parking and travel beginning at 6:00 a.m. on Tuesday, July 9th. Vehicles parked inside the main parade route and staging area will be subject to being towed at the owner’s expense. The parade route will be closed to all vehicle traffic beginning at 8:00 a.m. Spectators wishing to drop off chairs and other items to make their spectating experience more enjoyable, should do so before 8:00 a.m.
    For those who work or reside in the area, we urge you to know your route of travel, and parking availability, before the road closure times. We also ask, for the security and enjoyment of all who are attending, that personal drones or other flying crafts not be operated along the parade route.
