Tucson rodeo parade shortened

Posted: Updated:

The 2010 Rodeo Parade will be shorter than usual. City police budget cuts forced the Tucson rodeo parade committee to trim a half mile off the route.

Organizers hope the change will affect this year only.

The parade will start a quarter mile south at park and fair street, then run park to Irvington, west on Irvington to south 6th, then north ending near the rodeo grounds.
