Center Street, Casper Wyoming, 7:00 a.m.
Today is the Central Wyoming Fair & Rodeo Parade Day, in Casper Wyoming, for 2013.
A local holiday (although not every business takes it off) today features one of two annual big parades in Casper, the other being a parade that occurs just before Christmas. People begin to take their places on the parade route as early as 5:00 a.m., and as this photos demonstrates, people have quite a few places staked out by 7:00 a.m., including the places immediately in front of the office building in which I work. Those who work downtown on parade day always make an effort to park in their spots early, least they be taken and getting to work subsequently prove impossible.
