Parada del Sol Parade 2014
"Donette On A Stick"
Please join fellow Dons from all classes for the 61st Annual Parada del Sol Parade and Trails End Celebration. This year's theme is: "Scottsdale's Historic Rodeo Rides into the Future."
The parade runs north starting at Oak to Indian School Road at 10:00 a.m. to approximately 12:00 p.m.
There is a large group of Dons who meet at the Wilshire Plaza (Oak Street and Scottsdale Road) to watch the parade. We are located in the parking lot just north of Discount Tire. Many of us then move on to Patties First Avenue Lounge, 7220 E. 1st Avenue in the midst of the Trails End Celebration among other various locations throughout Old Town.
To RSVP and see who will be attending, Lee McGhee (CHS 1979) created the event on Facebook: Parada del Sol Parade 2014 - Coronado Alumni & Friends.
