Free Press Photography: 2024 Scottsdale Parada Del Sol in Old Town

Scottsdale Parada Del Sol brings community together as spring dawns
By Arianna Grainey | Digital Free Press

The Parada Del Sol and Trail’s End Festival was held last Saturday — made possible by the Scottsdale Charros and Oliver Smith Jeweler — welcoming colorful entrants, community leaders and groups along with and patrons of all things western Americana.

Found part of the Western Week, Scottsdale aficionados say the Parada Del Sol supports the rich heritage of the community of Scottsdale and ensures the western legacy glows as brightly as it did a century ago.

Highlights of the Parada Del Sol and Trail’s End Celebration included:

Parada del Sol (10 a.m.-noon) and Trail’s End Celebration (noon-4 p.m.): Saturday, Feb. 3, Historic Old Town. Scottsdale’s own hometown parade features colorful floats, mounted horse riders, horse-drawn carriages, marching bands, wagons and stagecoaches.

The parade ended with a western-spirited festival featuring live music, street entertainment, dancing, a wine garden and a cowboy kids’ zone.
