(This year's Cattle Call was a resounding success)....That is the reaction of several officials.
Actual numbers have not been released. However, large crowds were reported at all the Cattle Call events, and Rodeo Performances were sold out. The Annual Parade was held Saturday, and almost the entire 1.5 mile route was lined with spectators. The Grand Marshall this year was US District Judge Ruth Bermudez Montenegro. 148 participants had registered for this year's parade. Winners have been announced in this year's Parade Float competition. The Mayor's Pick was the American Beauty Academy. The Queen's pick was Sacred Heart Church. The Western Spirit award went to Rockwood Ag Services, and the Sweepstakes winner was Best Step Forward. Charla Teeters, Chairperson of the Cattle Call Parade Committee said the event was sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Brawley.
