UPDATE: Union Pacific agrees to stop trains for Tucson Rodeo Parade


TUCSON, AZ (KOLD News 13) - The Tucson Rodeo Parade will go on as planned after Union Pacific agreed to stop its trains for the event.

Union Pacific initially refused to do it, ending a years-long tradition. Had Union Pacific not changed its mind, parade organizers may have had to change the route or deal with the trains, a safety hazard for the horses, riders and parade goers.

The Tucson Rodeo Parade, the “world’s longest non-motorized parade," begins at 9 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 21. KOLD News 13 will broadcast the two-hour parade live and stream it online.

The parade route begins on Ajo Highway, about a half-mile west of Park Avenue. The parade will roll down Ajo, turn right on Park Avenue, then right on Irvington Road and right on Sixth Avenue before ending at the Tucson Rodeo Grounds.
