4th of July Celebration

Annual Wet Parade and Festivities

Make a splash!

FireTruckParade.JPGSince the 1970's the Pueblo West Metropolitan District has celebrated Independence Day with a splash! What began as typical hot July morning, as Fire Chief Jack Fowler sprayed a crowd of sweaty spectators with a fire hose along the parade route, has now turned into the largest wet parade and water fight west of the Mississippi.

DiveBoatParade.JPGEach Independence Day the parade route along Joe Martinez Boulevard is transformed into a winding stream of blasting water cannons and squirt guns. Those brave enough to participate in the battle park along the route early in the morning. The beds of pick-ups are transformed into holding tanks, containing hundreds of gallons of water - easy access for quick reloads - and plenty of ammunition for the duration of the parade.

For those who wish to stay 'dry', there is a section along the beginning of the parade route where water is forbidden, or it is suggested to bring a canopy or plastic to shield away the water.

There is also a 'dry' section of the parade, where entrants can enjoy the scene in an antique automobile or on horseback.
