This year’s edition of the popular parade was the largest so far in terms of total parade participants and very well attended. The Yuma Police Department has unofficially estimated that this year’s crowd was the largest to date. Annual attendance in recent years for the event has been approximated at 40,000.
Visit Yuma thanks parade sponsors APS, Southwest Gas, Lockheed Martin, Yuma International Airport, Liberty Motorsports and Westerner Products as well as the City of Yuma for its partnership and support of the event.
The Yuma Visitors Bureau is always happy to assist members of print, digital and broadcast media, either on assignment or pitching an idea with a Yuma angle.
Visit Yuma team can suggest itineraries and facilitate visits, or provide you with the inspired details to help nail down an assignment. We pride ourselves on always going "above and beyond."
