The Dress-Up Parade is the unofficial start of the Pendleton
Round-Up, and encourages people to dress up and have fun. The
parade was held on Saturday, September 6, starting at 10:00 AM.
It began at City Hall, and ended up at the Pendleton Convention
There’s no specific dress code, no grand marshal and no specific
theme — other than to have fun. It gives everyone in town a
chance to be in a parade — just come and have fun and be in a
parade. People just whoop it up and
have a good time. We want people to
come on down to join our parade.
Staged the weekend before rodeo
action hits the arena, the event
helps people get excited about Round-Up.
Everything from rodeo courts to
floats and marching bands join in the
This year, as in years past, the
Pendleton and Hermiston Desert
Shrine Clubs participated in the
Parade. This year, they also had East
Queen Mckenzie of Enterprise riding
along with them.
