The Independence Day parade in Pagosa is a fun and colorful event

It's such a local tradition that it rates it's own photo page.  Treat yourself to a bit of nostalgia and enjoy this old-fashioned small town parade.  Kids, dogs, horses, floats, antique cars, Fair and Rodeo royalty, friends and families all gather every year to watch ourselves in the grand parade down main street.  Mike Neder was the official photographer of this Rotary-sponsored for several years - nearly all of these are his photos.
