Each year we have the Western Days Rodeo and Parade here in Lakeside. To promote the parade we have a Western Days Rally here at our school on the Friday of the Rodeo Weekend. Our school is visited by Rodeo Princesses and the Rodeo Clown, and our students participate in several fun activities. In addition, we invite our students and staff to dress-up in their Western attire and we have a rootin’-tootin’ parade right here at Lemon Crest!
On Saturday morning, Lakeside hosts The Western Days Parade which is a festive event filled with one of the largest equestrian participations on the West coast: Bands, Clowns, Classic Cars, Off-Roaders, Queens, Princesses and local dignitaries. Local businesses, schools, service organizations and sport teams are honored. It begins around 9:35 am and travels along Woodside & Maine Ave.
Lemon Crest School participates in the parade and shares a float with one of the other elementary schools in our district. Teachers choose exemplary students here at the school to ride on the float. The floats are decorated to fit with the theme of the parade, which changes every year. Be sure to join us on the parade route, and cheer on the Lemon Crest Star Students!
