Twin Falls' Western Days Parade


By Michelle Costa

TWIN FALLS, ID (KMVT-TV) - It's the 30th year for Twin Falls' Western Days.

The three–day event features music, food festivals, and of course, the Western Days’ parade.

Saturday morning's parade went through the heart of downtown Twin Falls.

Horses, boats and tons of kids. It was a parade of about 100 entries.

This year's theme: “Fun for Generations.”

And fun it was.

"We just brought the kids out here to have a good time and enjoy the nice weather,” said Lisa Ward.

"We always come out and have a big party with the family,” said Sarah Sheen.

While cars, trucks and even a trolley go by, parade watchers clap and the kids search for those prized pieces of candy.

The truth is most people love a parade, but everyone has a different reason why.

"We're at the parade and the best part is the horses and the candy and I love them,” said Harlowe Bartlome.

"The girls on the cars with the crowns,” said Kennedy Bartlome.

"There were little guys in carts and they were driving around,” said Raigen Duffin.

"I like ... the.. candy,” said Easton Bradshaw.

"The horses," said Mailei Moore.

"Having fun and getting candy,” said Aliya Heiken.

"Spending time with friends and family,” said Paul Horner.

It's estimated 50,000 people will attend Western Days as a way to kick off the beginning of summer.
