Tucson Rodeo Parade and Bus Trip Planned

Joyce Shumate

On Friday, Jan. 21, at 2 p.m., the Let’s Travel Club monthly program is all about the Tucson Rodeo Parade and Diamond Transportation.

The 97th Annual Tucson Rodeo Parade is slated for Thursday, Feb. 24. The procession includes national dignitaries, Native American royalty and performers, historical wagons, color floats, marching bands, mariachis, rodeo royalty, and working cowboys.

The parade is the world’s longest non-motorized parade! This colorful, exciting parade is presented each year and keeps the spirit of the first parade back in 1925. It’s known to be the largest non-motorized parade in the country. It still achieves its success through the community’s participation and the dedicated work of its members, volunteers, and the generosity of the sponsors.

Diamond Transportation was established in 1996 and has been providing Tucson’s corporate travelers and leisure travelers with luxury transportation and chauffeured car services. Their consistent, quality service has been pleasing customers in Tucson and the surrounding area for years. Diamond Transportation works with visiting executives, local clientele, and exclusive resorts to ensure that it remains Tucson’s trusted chauffeur service.

Diamond Transportation has taken the next step in luxury transportation with its focus on value and are sure you will be pleased with its services.

Have you ever wanted to go to the Tucson Rodeo Parade but didn’t want the hassle of driving, finding and paying for a place to park, and then finding a good place to watch from? At this presentation, you’ll hear all about the Tucson Rodeo Parade and Diamond Transportation and then have the opportunity to sign up for a fun, full day—bus trip to the Tucson Rodeo Parade, including grandstand reserved seats, and admission to the Tucson Rodeo Museum, all for only $55 per person, payable by cash or check only. There is a minimum of 20 and a maximum of 31. This is not a Quail Creek sponsored event.

The museum features displays of scenes of the Old West, including blacksmithing, saddles, and cowboy life on the range. Many historic wagons and carriages are displayed, including buckboards, surreys, farm wagons, and Tucson’s first paddy wagon, as well as stagecoaches, a school bus, and much more.

So, come join Let’s Travel Club on Friday, Jan. 21, at 2 p.m. in the Kino Center in the Ocotillo and Mesquite Rooms to hear more about this once-a-year special Tucson event, which is open to all Quail Creek residents. Hope to see you there.
