MONTE VISTA—The Stampede Parade Committee has decided on next year’s parade theme. They are making the announcement early in an effort to give individuals, businesses and groups plenty of time to make plans for their entries. The 2018 theme is being revealed now, nine months in advance of Stampede. The theme chosen is, “A Blaze of Glory,” which is an exciting one that can be interpreted many different ways. The Stampede parade will take place in downtown Monte Vista on Friday, July 27 and Saturday, July 28, 2018. The parade committee is again looking forward to two great parades with creative entries and enthusiastic support lining the streets.
