IMPERIAL — This city will kick off the California Mid-Winter Fair & Fiesta with a parade here Saturday.
The fair will be March 1 through 10 at the Imperial Valley Expo in Imperial.
The fair parade was a fixture for 28 years, but that ended some time ago, said Imperial Chamber of Commerce Secretary Manager Jo Ellen Jackson.
Jackson said she wasn't sure when or why the parade was stopped. It was revived briefly a couple years ago, she said, but took another hiatus last year.
Jackson said she had just come onto the chamber board last year and chamber officials felt it was too soon for her to take on such a responsibility.
