The date of the annual rodeo parade is almost here – Saturday, July 27! Parade entry forms are available at the Chamber office and can be mailed/emailed as requested. This is an opportunity for families, businesses, churches and local organizations to show their spirit and support for the Burwell community and historical rodeo. This year’s parade theme is “Stirrup Some Fun at Nebraska’s Big Rodeo.” Line-up for the parade will start at 8:00 AM at the Burwell City Park (7th Avenue entrance), with the parade starting at 10:00 AM. Those wanting to be judged must be lined up by 9:00 AM. PARADE ROUTE NOTE: This year, the parade route has been changed/extended for several more blocks to end just past the new Community Memorial Health Center on F Street. As in previous years, the parade route starts at the 8th Avenue park entrance and continues south on 8th to Grand Avenue and then clockwise around three-quarters of the downtown Burwell square (new direction), exiting on east G Street, heading north on 9th Avenue, and then west on F Street until 11th Avenue. A map of the new parade route is available at the Chamber office or by clicking on the map image below.
