Parade Map 2018 Snake River Stampede

The Exchange Club Parade America and Snake River Stampede Parade are combining into one larger parade this year, beginning at 11 a.m. on Sat., May 19, in Nampa. The theme for the 52nd annual Parade America is, “God Bless the U.S.A.” and the parade historically draws thousands of spectators each year. The Snake River Stampede Parade is the largest horse parade in the U.S. The two historic parades are being combined this year due to scheduled construction during the summer months.

While the two parades will be combined, registration will still be maintained separately. Exchange Club Parade America will accept all entries except for equestrian-related entries, which will be handled by the Snake River Stampede. The deadline to register is May 15.
