Residents Russell Waggoner and Nancy Leonard enjoying the parade

On Feb. 23, 2016, residents and associates from Life Care Center of Tucson attended the 91st Annual Tucson Rodeo Parade.

 

Also known as the Fiesta de los Vaqueros, the event is the largest non-motorized parade in the country, and it offers lots of color and excitement. Community members and organizations ride horses or are pulled along in wagons, in addition to walking and dancing along the route.

 

Roberta Forguson, a dietary aide, was in the parade representing Tucson Parks and Recreation. She has a love for horses, and she drove a team led by horses Annie and Lime.

 

“A big thank you to the Tucson Police Department and the staff of Circle K for helping our residents get front-row seating and to Circle K for supplying free doughnuts to residents and staff,” said Morgiana Correa, activity director.

 

“It was a beautiful day with good people,” said resident Russell Waggoner. “I used to have a ranch, and I enjoyed being around horses again.”
