Parade kicks off day filled with activities

A beautiful August morning with plenty of sunshine helped attract a big crowd to the annual Frontier Western Celebration Parade in downtown El Dorado earlier today.

Bill Young was the emcee, assisted by Emily Connell, and Vince Haines was the Grand Marshall.

You still have time to take in a full day of family fun, all at East Park and the Civic Center.  For a schedule of events, visit the HollyFrontier Western Celebration Facebook page.

Check our photo gallery later for more photos from the parade.
