The City of Richmond and the City of Rosenberg will be presenting the “Tradition Returns” Parade in honor of the 85th Fort Bend County Fair. The Parade will be on Friday, September 24, 2021, on the traditional day known as Fair Day. This announcement comes as a collaborative effort between the cities staff and various departments. The parade route begins at the Historic Court House, 401 Jackson Street, in Richmond and proceeds west down Hwy. 90-A to Jennetta Street in Rosenberg.
A parade committee has been formed and is working hard to make the event run safe and well. Safety measures will be in place to help mitigate COVID concerns. Both Mayor Becky Haas of Richmond and Mayor Kevin Raines of Rosenberg are excited to be able to carry on the tradition that has meant so much to Fort Bend County. “We look forward to the Parade going though Richmond and Rosenberg, and giving back to the community. It is going to be special,” says Terri Vela, City of Richmond’s City Manager.
Parade entries are being accepted now at https://www.richmondtx.gov. Fort Bend County residents and other parade-watchers will be treated to parade entries that include floats, horses, marching bands, antique cars, and much more.
