10 HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY, JULY 9, 2010 Rodeo celebrates 32 Annual July 4 th Parade in grand fashion By PAT OWENSRodeo Rodeo celebrated July 4th with their 32nd annual parade, beef barbecue, cake auc- tion, dance and fireworks on Sunday July 4th. The first parade and beef bar- becue in 1978 raised $50 for the first ever schol- arship for a worthy local student. The scholar- ships today are in the neighborhood of $1000 for 2 or more students and families from Hidalgo County come every year to join in the festivities and to reunite with family and class- " mates from years ago. Scholarship winners this year were Katherine Cavaliere of Animas and Karyssa Roark of San Simon. This was the third year for free games for children in Ned Hall Park in the afternoon prior to the parade. The judges chose Southwestern Re- search Station as "Best Overall" and La Buena Vida Farms as "best float". Debbie Anbinder with her dog Cooper won the "Best Walking Entry" and Mon- soon Music Makers won for Stars and Stripes--Debbie Anbinder and her dog Cooper Photo by JOHN GRIGGS "Best Musical Entry" with their kazoo rendition of "I'm a Yan- kee Doodle Dandy". Three youngsters in the kazoo band were vis- iting from Indiana and France ! Ed Ashurst of the Mallet Ranch south of Rodeo carried the American flag on horseback and Kylie Moore sang the Na- tional Anthem. The National For- est Service is busy with the Brushy Fire in the Chiricahuas and did not have an entry this year. The smoke from the Brushy Fire was visible at times but did not affect the high spir- its of the spectators nor of the participants of the parade. A big thank you to all those that helped with the work involved to put on this event and to those that donated prizes. See you next year at the 33rd July 4th events!
