Judges named the First People's Pow Wow entry, and all related participants, the Grand Prize winner in Friday's Sheridan-WYO Rodeo Parade.
Judges' spokesman David Oakes said the spectacular costumes, both modern and traditional, of the entry added color to the parade, while the dancers entertained and captured the attention of all spectators.
In comments following the parade, as the judges prepared to recess to a downtown restaurant to discuss their choices, Oakes said the parade was beautiful.
He anticipated that judges would have a hard time selecting winners in at least a couple of categories.
Winners in other categories included True Colors, first in commercial entries; the WYO Rodeo covered wagon driven by Stan Flitner, first in horse entries including light and heavy harness, costume and mounted individuals and groups; and the Sheridan High School Booster Club, first in organizations.
The Wyoming All-State Marching Band took first place in bands and drill units. First in the novelty division were the Kalif Shrine Klowns/monster truck.
