Parades

The Club has proudly participated in local parades including the Gilroy Memorial Day celebration and the Morgan Hill Independence Day celebration.  Parade viewers especially like the colorful Arabian native costumes worn by some of our riders.  It is a good venue to display our beautiful Arabians.
