CASPER, Wyo. — Will crowds turn out for Casper’s first post-pandemic parade? People came out in droves in 2019, but the Central Wyoming Fair & Rodeo Parade was canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

With the 2021 parade scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. Tuesday, July 13, people may want to scout out the route and find a place to gather with friends and family. There is also a new, dedicated viewing area for people with disabilities so they can enjoy the floats and other attractions as they wind through the streets of downtown Casper. Here is the map:

The parade will begin at the intersection of Ash Street and West Yellowstone Highway. As the parade moves east, it will enter East Second Street before turning south onto South Beech Street. There, the parade will approach the new parade viewing area reserved for people with disabilities. That accessible viewing area will be located across from Skyline Towers, near the park on Collins Drive.

The parade will turn west onto Collins Drive before heading south on Center Street. It will then pass by City Park before coming to an end at the corner of Center and Ninth Street.

The parade is a kickoff to the annual Central Wyoming Fair & Rodeo.
