Cattle drive kicks off The Fair

The Western Washington Fair’s annual Western Rodeo Parade and Cattle Drive took place at 10 a.m. Sept. 7 and made its way through downtown Puyallup. Professional rodeo cowboys herded 60 steers along the parade route to mark the beginning of the Western Washington Fair, which opened with the cattle drive and runs through Sept. 23 at the fairgrounds in Puyallup.

The parade lineup included junior and senior high school marching bands, Joint Base Lewis-McChord color guards, equestrian drill teams and draft horse hitches. Fred Oldfield, a renowned master artist specializing in the American West, was the grand marshal. This year’s theme is “Get Your Happy On.”
