Despite less than ideal conditions, hundreds of spectators lined 50th Avenue on Saturday morning for the annual Rimbey Rodeo Parade. Members of the Royal Canadian Legion (centre) were just one of many floats in the parade that experienced rain and gusty winds, however the weather made a timely turn for the better. Clockwise from the upper left, the Rimbey RCMP led the parade in damp conditions however a few hours later the skies had cleared and patrons had a chance to check out the midway that included a rollercoaster, the high-flying Yo-Yo and face painting as Rimbey’s Brooklyn Watson is transformed into a butterfly.
