The Caddo Round-Up Club also is sponsoring a parade that will begin lining up at 9 a.m. Saturday at the school grounds and head toward downtown at 10.
Following the parade, there will be a barbecue lunch and silent auction at the Rock Community Building. Carry-out trays will be available. Funds raised from this event will be used to improve the town’s appearance.
