PHOTOS AND STORY BY STEFAN KRUSZE
The tradition, spanning generations, continues with Littleton’s Western Welcome Week Grand Parade. Grandparents and grandkids, along with parents, and in some cases great grandparents, came out to watch or even march in the parade. The streets of Littleton were overflowing with parade floats, marching bands and mobile music floats ranging from country to classical along with classic cars, fire engines and farm tractors. The sidewalks were lined with people with some staking their best viewing spots with blankets and lawn chairs hours before the even parade started. In it’s 91st year, the parade and Western Welcome Week in its entirety emphasized the theme of “The Tradition Continues” to a tee, welcoming family and friends to one of Colorado’s most notable and popular events, which is sure to continue for many more generations to come.
