The Fair and Rodeo parade
director arrives about 10
minutes before the parade
starts to get the whole thing
organized right?
Wrong. Jim Wishart, who
has been parade director for
the past five years and
assistant parade director in
1975, puts in many long hours
to assure that the parade will
be smooth running and enter
taining. His work involves sending
out the entry forms, choosing
judges, arranging for prizes
and ribbons, determining the
order of entries and parade
routes, keeping everyone in
line and under control, start
ing the parade and taking care
of a "million" last minute
details.
"I've had them (parade
entries) come five minutes
before the parade. When it
gets too close to the time,
there's no way I can get them
in," said Wishart.
"I get a lot of help from Jim
Farley and Comett Green who
ride on horseback to get things
going," added Wishart.
Jim said he expects a
normal number of entries this
year. He said there were 14
floats last year and 15 the year
before, with a total of about 20
entries.
Heading up the parade this
year at 10 a.m. on Saturday,

by the American Legion and
the VFW. Following them will
be the 1980 Morrow County
Rodeo Queen and her court
and the band.
Roughly $400 in prizes are
awarded to parade entries
every year. The grand sweep
stakes of $50 goes to the best
local (within Morrow County)
float.
Float entries and old cars
and machinery entries will
gather near the Morrow

will gather on Riverside St.
across the street from the old
car entries. The children's
division entries will join the
parade at North 'A St., and
the riding clubs and the queen
and her court will join at Gale
St.
Jim, as most everyone in the
area knows, is employed at
the Bank of Eastern Oregon in
Heppner. He and his wife,
Cam, have four children. A
son, Jim, also lives in Hepp
ner; a daughter lives in
Florida; another lives in
Prairie City ; and another son
is in the Navy in the
Mediterranean.
