UPDATE: RESULTS POSTED AT END OF STORY -Crowds of people lined both sides of Main Street and adjacent streets downtown and braved some warm temperatures to enjoy the 2012 Sheridan-WYO Rodeo Parade Friday morning.
This year's theme “Clowning Around At The Sheridan WYO Rodeo” was well represented as there were plenty of clowns and lots of tomfoolery on each float.
Sheridan Media again broadcast live from the parade this morning and Sheridan College and ACT teamed up to broadcast the parade live on the internet so people all over the world could enjoy the show.
Lauren Fish and her daughter Chloe both said they had a great time at the parade.
Close to 110 different floats made their way through the parade route and passed out candy, water and fun along the way.
