Right around June 29th the Prescott Area will be flooded with rodeo enthusiasts and participants from across the country attending both the rodeo and Frontier Days Parade and celebrations.
In addition to the large crowds flocking to the rodeo grounds, often between 30,000 and 40,000 people pack the streets of downtown Prescott for the parade.
There will be no mask protocols in place for the rodeo or parade, although organizers claim there will be social distancing. No way they will be able to maintain it. I’m sure the ‘COVID-19 is a Conspiracy Crew’ will see the social distancing as a violation of their “God-Given Rights” to risk the health of others and act with complete impunity.
What an arrogant and irresponsible disregard for the health and well being of others.
Call Mayor Mengarelli and tell him what you think. 928-777-1255 & 928-777-1248
As Mayors across Arizona enact mandatory mask protocols in public, Prescott mayor Mengarelli @GMMOPAZ remains silent and is promoting 4th of July parade and Rodeo with no mask protocols.
We deserve better leadership.#PublicHealthDanger pic.twitter.com/Ef6RZzsfiP
