The DNCC and the National Western Stock Show Parade

[blip.tv ?posts_id=615430&dest=-1]

Earlier this week, we posted here about our first experience and impressions of the annual parade in downtown Denver to open the National Western Stock Show. Now, we’re back with video of the big event — a parade of longhorns marching down one of Denvers busiest streets followed by tractors, stage coaches and a menagerie of color and spirit.”A visual manifestation of our West and our Western culture” is how National Western Stock Show President and CEO Patrick Grant described the parade. Click below to hear more of what he had to say, including his thoughts on the opportunity presented by the Democratic National Convention in Denver, as well as comments from Hall of Fame Pitcher and Parade Grand Marshal Nolan Ryan, who spoke to the impact of both agriculture and the Convention on the Colorado economy. Governor Bill Ritter even paused from his saddle to offer a greeting to our DemConvention.com visitors!
