Parade Begins Gladewater Rodeo Week

It's the traditional start of a week's worth of fun and activities and it got underway this morning in Gladewater with a downtown parade.  Hundreds of people lined the streets of the old downtown area for the 70th annual Gladewater Round-Up Rodeo parade. The rodeo draws visitors from all over Texas and all across the country. 

Participants say it's the small town charm and a little bit of everything that brings people back every year.  "There's Canadians here people from all over the country.  You name just all over the United States.  You'd be surprised how many people come in here just for this whole week. I mean it's awesome," said Gladewater resident Cisco Frierson.

The round-up rodeo runs from June 6th through the 9th at the rodeo grounds beginning at 8:15 every night.
