Mustang Days Parade sees high turnout

The 2022 Mustang Days Parade was an undeniable success.
While last year saw a torrent of rain, this year saw bright, sunny weather and a long line of floats. 
According to parade organizer Kristine Henley, the parade saw 69 floats make the trip up and down Lovell’s Main Street this year, an increase from previous years where the parade typically saw around 50 floats. 
For the second time, the winners in the parade were not determined by judges but by the voting public. Community members on Facebook voted on their favorite floats.
The Lovell-Kane Museum restored wagon took home the first place award with 66 votes.
The Lovell Branch Library celebrating 100 years float took home second with 53 votes.
The Crosby family reunion float received third place with 43 votes.
The Girl Scouts and the Class of 1967 were close runners up, Henley said. 
A total of 170 community members voted, Henley said. 
“The parade went off really smooth,” Henley said.  “Everyone did a great job keeping up the pace, and (Big Horn County) Search and Rescue blocked off the roads and kept everyone in line.”
