Pageant winners, marching bands, vintage cars, tractors, horses, and did we mention the floats made by our very own locals and businesses?
Going on 115 years, the parade has been a tradition of the Fruita Fall Festival since 1914 when the event was called the Cowpunchers’ Reunion. A lot has changed over the decades, but the parade has always remained an essential part of the celebration.
Sponsored by the Grand Valley Bank, the popular Parade will celebrate this year’s theme: “Fall in Love with Fruita.” Dustin Wells, Grand Valley Bank Vice President and Fruita Branch Manager, grew up in Fruita and has happy memories for the parade. “I remember riding on the Moon Farm train when I was in kindergarten. I loved the parade as a child, and I love watching the parade now with my wife and two daughters.”
