This year there will be a $25 prize for the winner of each of the following categories:
- walking, individual or group

- float, individual or group
- floats, corporate

A $50 prize will be presented for "Best Overall," which will be the judges' choice of the entry that best exemplifies the spirit of the Spring Rodeo Parade. Prizes will be sent by mail. Entry forms are available at the Rim Country Regional Chamber of Commerce and the Payson Roundup office.
The parade starts at Green Valley Park, at the four-way intersection of Green Valley Parkway and Main Street, and will go east on Main to Colcord, just west of the chamber office.
