The Southern Downs Regional Council is gearing up for its annual Warwick Rodeo Street Parade, offering local businesses and organisations big cash prizes, encouraging them to enter a float or even a decorated bicycle in the event.
The Warwick Rodeo Street Parade is as iconic to the town as the world-renowned Rodeo and Campdraft itself. Held on October 30, this year’s event promises some exciting new inclusions.
Southern Downs Councillor Marco Gliori said that this year’s theme of ‘Past, Present and Future’ will reflect and celebrate the essence of the community’s rich history and future.
“The parade has a distinguished history as part of the Warwick Rodeo and is an event that our community continues to enjoy today,” Cr Gliori said.
“In 2021, we want to encourage participation, creativity and enthusiasm for the anticipated return of the parade through who we are, where we’ve come from and where we’re heading.
“We will no doubt once again be welcoming visitors from all over South East Queensland in addition to our regular rodeo families that make Warwick home during the event.
“We want this to be the biggest parade yet so let’s get creative and show the world why Southern Downs is a great place to live, work, play and stay.”
Council said it is once again pleased to welcome local industry leader John Dee – the oldest single family owned meat processor in Australia – as the major sponsor of the parade, thanking them for partnering with them on such a significant event for the community.
