By  | 

IRON RIVER, Mich. (WLUC) - Iron River residents also lined the streets to get a glimpse of this year's Wild West Parade.

People lined up to see horses, antique tractors, and of course, the city's emergency vehicles.

Dozens of floats made their way down Franklin and Genesee Streets, before looping back to the rodeo fairgrounds.

Organizers say while its a lot of work, its worth it to see so many people.

They also say it serves a bigger purpose for the community.

"This is kind of a given, everybody knows the Wild West Parade happens at 10am. We have an unlimited amount of participants with us, and people actually travel to come here. Its the biggest parade that we have here," said Rodeo Board Vice President Sari Jacobson.

This is the 52nd year for the parade and rodeo.
