Best Annual Spectacle

Fiesta de los Vaqueros Parade

STAFF PICK: Everyone knows that the Rodeo Day Parade is the world's longest non-motorized parade, but true aficionados agree that it's simply the best parade of any kind or any length on the planet. We loved Michael Goodrich in a horse-drawn carriage; the charros and their fabulous dancing horses; the ladies' escaramuzas in glorious costumes; the high school bands marching bravely along behind the sheriff's mounted posse. We love the Rodeo Queen and her court. We love the crowd, our fellow Tucsonans, sitting in the gutter cheering the Buffalo Soldiers and the Mormon Battalion.
