Since 1935, the parade has been a favorite annual event, entertaining thousands of children and adults as it winds through the historic streets of downtown Vinita. With “American Spirit the Will Rogers Way” themed entries, including brightly decorated floats, marching bands, equestrian units, and a cast of wild west characters, Vinita's biggest parade is an event not to be missed.
