Everybody loves a parade — and there are plenty for crowds to see during Ogden Pioneer Days. The Horse and Hitch Parade features horses of all kinds and the Grande Parade on July 24 kicks off a day of events and activities to celebrate Utah’s statehood.
Ogden's Horse & Hitch Parade is one of the finest in Utah. The unmistakable rattle of wooden wagon wheels, and the clippety-clop of horse hooves, will be heard throughout downtown Ogden. The Parade Route will be along Washington Blvd., to 26th Street to Grant Ave, over to 25th Street and back along Washington Blvd. Staging area will start east of Prairie Schooner Restaurant on Park Blvd. Come see every kind, color, breed and size of horse imaginable.

The commemoration of Utah’s statehood starts with Ogden Pioneer Days’ Grande Parade, which runs through the heart of Ogden City. The parade route begins on 31st Street, continues northbound on Washington Boulevard and ends on 20th Street. Thousands of spectators line up along Washington Boulevard to cheer for marching bands, service organizations, student body representatives from Ogden-area schools, floats, horse drawn carriages, antique automobiles, and youth dance groups. There’s literally something for everybody. To get a good spot in parade, be sure to have your application in by May 31st. Late applications will be received up to July 10th.
