We got there an hour early to get a good place to park and to find a good place to stand. It's a good thing, too, because by the time the parade started the main street was completely lined with people.

This was the first school group. I love how the mascots are very Texan in nature.
The Ocelots were identically dressed in vaquera (cowgirl) costumes.
Next came the Rancho Verde Elementary Rattlers. I'm guessing the banner carriers are the principal and the vice-principal.
Early on in the parade, Skip remarked that he was surprised that there were no horses. He spoke too soon as the last groups were all in the equine vein.
Here was a replica of a Wells Fargo stagecoach.
The parade lasted almost 1.5 hours.
After the traffic abated, we drove around the corner to Julia's Restaurant for some taquitos.
See the next post for what we did after lunch...
