Bundle up for the rodeo parade, it’s going to be chilly

Bands, military formations, classic cars and tractors, floats and riding groups will fill the downtown streets Saturday. The San Angelo Rodeo parade is one of the most anticipated events of each rodeo season.

The weather is different for the parade each year. No one quite knows from one year to the next if it’ll be jacket weather, parka weather or if raincoats are needed. Saturday, jackets will be needed at the beginning of the parade, but may be able to be shed quickly as temperatures will warm into the lower 60s.

The parade begins at 10 a.m. Saturday and will weave its way through the streets of the downtown area.

The usual route will be taken through downtown San Angelo, beginning at the corner of Irving and Concho streets; east to Oakes Street to Twohig Avenue; left on Twohig to Chadbourne Street; right on Chadbourne to College Street; left on Irving Street to Beauregard Avenue; right on Beauregard to Randolph Street; and finally, left on Randolph to River Drive.
