Join the Greeley Stampede Shoebox Parade!

The Greeley Stampede annually has one of the largest 4th of July Independence Day Parades. Community members traditionally stake out their spots days before to watch and cheer for their favorite marching band, floats & community organizations. Unfortunately, the parade is cancelled this year for the health & safety of our community. To keep the parade tradition alive, the Greeley Stampede is hosting a virtual shoebox parade.

Thanks to everyone who submitted floats for our Shoebox Parade - there is truly no shortage of creativity in our community! The Greeley Stampede is now creating a parade video that will premiere live on Facebook Saturday, July 4, 2020 at 9am. Tune in to watch the parade!

The Greeley Stampede will award prizes courtesy of SCHEELS that includes a $50 gift card and family prize bag for the following categories:
  • Red, White & You - most patriotic presented by Pepsi
  • Celebrating Our Heroes of the Front Lines presented by Banner Health
  • myGreeley - best represents our community presented by TBK Bank
  • Spotlight - most entertaining & creative presented by Greeley Area Realtors Association
  • A+ Award - best K-12 student-made award presented by Xcel Energy. The winner of the A+ Award will receive a prize from SCHEELS and $500 for your school!
Following the virtual parade, viewers can vote for their favorite float in the Facebook photo gallery. The photo with the most likes will be recognized as the All Pro Fan Favorite presented by SCHEELS. The winner of the Fan Favorite award will receive a $250 gift card complete with an exclusive shopping spree with the SCHEELS experts to get the gear you want.
