Bring the whole family to line the streets for the annual Western Heritage Parade, as we celebrate the return of the Southwest District Livestock Show and Rodeo to Lake Charles! Individuals, groups, and organizations are invited to take part in this one of a kind tribute to the history and pageantry of our rodeo heritage. The parade begins at the corner of Lagrange and Patrick Street, travels west on Lagrange to Ryan Street, and then south on Ryan Street to McNeese stadium. Then be sure to join us later that evening for the opening performance of the 85th annual Southwest District Livestock Show and Rodeo - The Greatest Show on Dirt!
