Staff Report

Spectators of all ages lined Central Avenue Saturday morning to watch the annual Los Alamos County Fair and Rodeo Parade.

Everything from cars displaying magnetic signs to riders on horseback and marching bands to a small adobe structure on a flat bed truck comprised the 29 entries this year. First place went to the ornately decorated Los Alamos National Bank float, which creatively reflected this year’s “100 Years of Homesteading” theme. Second place went to First Robotics and third went to ZIA Credit Union.

The annual arts and crafts fair filled Fuller Lodge lawn Saturday and following the parade, the spectators visited the many booths open across Ashely Pond Park.

Rodeo action also got underway after the parade Saturday and continues 1-3 p.m. today at Brewer Stadium.
