Red Bluff Daily News
RED BLUFF — Rain held off and the sun appeared Saturday for the 65th annual Red Bluff Round-Up Parade, which honored seven generations of the Owens family as grand marshal, leading the way with two large floats behind and several smaller ones. The theme was Livin’ the Cowboy Life and in total there were about 90 entries, according to Amanda Jenkins and Mandi Owens who served as the announcers. Little Miss CCPRA makes her way down Main Street on Saturday during the Red Bluff Round-Up Parade.(Julie Zeeb — Daily News) Red Bluff resident Michelle Banuelos came out to watch her daughter, Talia Thommen-Banuelos, who was with the Tehama County Youth Focus float. She was accompanied by her son David Thommen-Banuelos. “I’ve been coming for about 12 to 15 years,” Banuelos said. “We’re here every year and whatever my kids are fortunate to take a part of we’re here with. It has become a tradition not only for this community, but us as a family.” Tehama County Search & Rescue makes their way down Main Street on Saturday during the Red Bluff Round-Up Parade.(Julie Zeeb — Daily News) Asked what her favorite part of Round-Up is, Banuelos said she couldn’t pick just one. “We always go to the pancake breakfast and from beginning to end (of Round-Up), it’s great,” Banuelos said. “This is David’s first year getting to watch as a spectator.” Mark and Linda O’Sullivan came out to enjoy the parade and brought a few friends with them. The couple operates By the River senior living facility and turned the parade into an outing with their residents, Linda O’Sullivan said. Red Bluff Junior Round-Up Royalty make their way down Main Street on Saturday during the Red Bluff Round-Up Parade.(Julie Zeeb — Daily News) “We go every year,” said Dana Brent. “This year my boys are in the parade. It’s fun for the family. It’s community and friends and it really just brings the community together. It’s almost a heritage. We all go and meet up at the parade.” In addition to the parade, Brent said her family went to the Kiwanis pancake breakfast Saturday morning and the rodeo Friday night, walking to the fairgrounds with a group of 35 thanks to tickets for schools through the Cowboys & Kids programs. The parade had several entries from local youth organizations including the Red Bluff Junior Round-Up Association, Tehama County Youth Focus, Girl Scouts, Red Bluff Youth Soccer League, the Red Bluff Junior Spartans as well as several from places like Redding, Lake County and Willows.
