Clovis - Curry County Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on June 21.
Grab a cup of coffee and get ready for a busy, yet fun-packed day on Saturday, June 29th. The day will start with the Gearhead Gathering at Hillcrest Park and end with the highly anticipated Draggin’ Main event. We’re excited for everything in between, and looking forward to not one, not two, but three parades that are bound to result in a lively and energetic environment for the whole town to enjoy from morning until night.
To kick things off, American Legion, in conjunction with their state conference in Clovis, will celebrate their 100th Anniversary with their very own parade at 10:00 am. We’ll join together to honor the legion and all its done in the past century, while also recognizing Clovis’ very own American Legion Posts, 25 and 117.
After that, we’ll enjoy the Great American Defense Community Patriotic Parade at 4:00 pm. This year, Clovis was named 2019 Great American Defense Community by the Association of Defense Communities. Clovis is home to a variety of military related programs that are beneficial to military personnel and their families. The city makes great efforts to create the best living environment for the men, women and children of Cannon Airforce Base. Not only that, but our city continues to develop support groups and communities, embrace students that are here due to the base, implement days of homage such as Angel Arms and Cannon Appreciation Day, and organize things such as the Cannon Newcomers Tour. Being recognized as the 2019 Great American Defense Community is a great honor for Clovis because of the great lengths it goes to in order to show the love, appreciation, and respect our military families deserve. It is a privilege to be considered home to these families, and we hope to see you come out in your red, white, and blue to represent the thriving patriotism in Clovis, New Mexico. To register for the parade, please contact the city manager’s office at 769-7828.
The last extravaganza before we cruise down Main will be the Hot Rods Parade, a very appropriate way to go out with a bang! Clovis car owners are known to have some pretty terrific vehicles, and the Hot Rods Parade, starting at 5:00 pm, is the best way to show them off right before the Draggin’ Main Event. We’ll take a ride back in time to the good ole days that we so greatly miss and appreciate. After the three parades, the annual Draggin’ Main Cruise will hit the bricks! Can you imagine a better day to be from Clovis, New Mexico?
