Nebraska's Big Rodeo Festivities Just Around the Corner.

The Burwell Chamber of Commerce has announced their parade theme for the 97th Annual Nebraskas Big Rodeo Parade.

Even Cowboys Like Rock and Roll is the parade theme this year set for Saturday July 28th at 10:00 am.

Entries are being taken now and also the day of the parade at 8:00 AM. To register for the parade you can call the Burwell Chamber Office at 308-345-5210.

Along with the new theme this year, there will be some rule changes for the parade.

The Chamber is asking that parade entries only throw candy or edibles, water balloons, advertising or campaign memorabilia on foot.

This year we are doing some different guidelines to make the parade a little safer, especially for the kids, says Stacie Roblyer, Program Administrator for the Burwell Chamber of Commerce.

By doing this, the goal for the chamber is to keep kids from getting too close to the moving vehicles.

Also this year, the parade route has been extended to G Street and 7th Ave, the corner by the Old Legion Club. entries are asked to get to this intersection before disbanding or disassembling.

This years Nebraska Big Rodeo will be on July 25-28.
