Westward Ho! Parade

Date: Sept 15, 2017
Location(s): 

The unique Westward Ho! Parade is held Friday morning of Round-Up week. Beginning with a big bang at 10 a.m. the Westward Ho! Parade begins its trek through the town of Pendleton. Here you will see most of the Native Americans who are camped at the Round-Up grounds, dressed in their tribal finery from grandmother to the tiniest tot.

This parade is unique in that no motorized vehicles are allowed in the line of the march. All types of early transportation are featured, from mules with a jerk line to oxen-drawn covered wagons, Mormon carts, buggies, surreys, and much more plus riding groups and music furnished by numerous marching bands from surrounding communities. The Westward Ho! Parade pays tribute to the early days in the West and to the pioneers whose descendants are participating in the Round-Up.

The parade starts downtown near City Hall (Dorion and SW 4th) and heads down Dorion towards the Court house. Between the Courthouse and "Up With Donuts" heads West on Court Street and ends at the Round-Up Grounds.


**PLEASE NOTE THERE ARE NO DRONES OR UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLES OF ANY SORT ALLOWED IN THE PARADE OR IN PROXIMITY OF THE PARADE ROUTE FOR THE SAFETY OF ALL INVOLVED.**

We are no longer accepting applications for 2017 season, please contact our office if you have questions. 541-276-2553
