The world famous Mother Lode Round-Up Parade kicks off in Downtown Sonora at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 11th, and will feature nearly 200 parade entries marching, trotting and rolling down the entire length of Washington Street. As usual, thousands of spectators can be expected, lining the street to watch and cheer. It draws over 20,000 visitors and spectators and has become one of “the events to see” in California. The Parade has grown to 5 Sections of over 200 entries.

Remember, the Parade begins at 10am on Saturday, May 11th and there'll be a crowd so get there early to find a place to park and to stake your claim on place watch along Washington Street.
