It's here! Gilbert Days 2008!
Beginning 9 a.m. Saturday November 15, downtown Gilbert will be awash in small town fun and festivities.
It all begins with a parade route that travels down Gilbert road from Juniper to the Town Square.
Then it's on to the Gilbert Municipal Center (South of Warner Road) for a party that lasts from 11 a.m. 'til the cows come home. (Note. The cows go at 5 p.m.)
The parade just keeps getting bigger and better. Expect to see plenty of floats, cowboys, horsies and any number of creative entries who will present their interpretations of the theme "Country Pride."
This isn't a one-off celebration. There's a carnival on November 22 & 23 along with a rodeo on the same days.
Of course, if you'd like a full slate of activities and directions, there's a handy website to find out more:
