Littleton celebrated the 90th anniversary of its Western Welcome Week Aug. 18 with the grandest parade yet, hosting parade floats and participants from both near and far.
What has been a tradition for 90 years of Western Welcome Week and the grand parade is that everyone is welcome. This year’s parade hosted a delegation from Bega, Australia, Littleton’s Sister City along with other participants from many other parts of Colorado. The parade featured floats, marching bands, horses, fire engines and classic automobiles and even with the sheer enormity of the event it left people wanting more.
