Tractors, horse-drawn wagons and floats parade through Paso Robles for 89th Pioneer Day

Horse-drawn wagons, antique tractors, floats and marching bands paraded through Paso Robles Saturday.

Spectators, young and old, could see this procession at the 89th annual Pioneer Day Parade themed "One Room Schoolhouse Days".

The day was packed with back to back events starting with the traditional bean cookout at 7 a.m.

"Some of the things we do early in the morning, we have a little pet contest where they dress their pets up like cow-dogs, and then we have a little cowboy/cowgirl contest and then we have a Whiskerino contest in front of the Carnegie Library to see who has the best beard," said Mark Perry, former chairman of Pioneer Day.

The city says the first Pioneer Day was held October 12, 1931 and was created as a way to bring the community together and celebrate the history of the area.
