Saturday’s Cloverdale Rodeo Parade is 69th annual

The wildly popular community celebration is expected to draw thousands to the historic Cloverdale Town Centre. Get there early for pancakes.

The 69th annual Cloverdale Rodeo Parade is expected to draw thousands of spectators into the historic town centre Saturday morning. The parade starts at 10 a.m., but arrive and follow your nose to a traditional pancake breakfast.

There are about 1,000 participants this year. The Fraser Valley Heritage Railway Society will have several entries of note, including a scale model Interurban railcar.

Watch for several entrants with heavy horses, a wide range of vintage and historic vehicles, a solid representation of political and service organizations, and – the stars of the show – the Gizeh Shriners, the quintessential parade component. This year’s Parade Marshall is Dianne Watts, former mayor of Surrey.

The parade starts at the corner of Highway 10 and 177B Street, heading west to 176 Street, north to 58A Avenue, east to 167A Street, north to 60 Avenue, turning south on 177B to 57 Avenue.
