Saturday, August 7th the La Junta Elks Lodge is sponsoring the Downtown Parade for the Kid’s Rodeo at 10:00 AM. All we need now is entrants! Get creative and be a part of the parade. Churches, service clubs, and individuals are encouraged to support this event. There is no theme…it is just a plain old fashioned parade! There is no cost to enter….call Ron Davis at 469-1081 to find out when and where to line up. (For information about the Rodeo, call Kent Waggoner at 643-5365.)

Earlier that morning visit the Community Wide Yard Sale on the downtown sidewalks of La Junta. There is no cost to participate and you can set up any where you’d like except where a merchant posts a sign requesting you not to set up. Set up as early as you like and stay as long as you want. Call Ron Davis at 469-1081 for more details. Finish off the day with Music At the Junction opening at 2:00 at Potter’s Park. This year’s headliner is Eddie Money. See www.MusicAtTheJunction.com for more details.

Delbert Jones has contacts that have teams and wagons that could be hired by a business or organization to “chauffer” them in a parade. There is obviously a cost since getting the wagons and teams here from out of town cost the owners. The going rate for services like this is $350. If your business or organization would be interested in having a team be their “chauffer” in either the Kid’s Rodeo Parade (Aug. 7) or Early Settler’s Day Parade (Sept. 11) please contact the Chamber Office at 384-7411
