Having what we have now is a sincere blessing. But we haven’t always had what we do now. To elaborate, the crazy infrastructure of cities, and insane machines, and the conquering of lands wasn’t done overnight, and it certainly wasn’t done by one person. The pioneers were a community of people that travelled the land to explore and make sure of the land they lived on. If all the things to celebrate about pioneers to be written down, you would be reading for hours, even weeks. What’s better is by joining the rest of Paso Robles in the Annual Pioneer Day Parade.
Pioneer Day is centred around reliving, appreciating, and conserving the memory of the lives of said pioneers. They traversed the untamed midwest in earlier years in search of a way to live life. As Pioneers became established a lot of industrialization came around and eventually, the world of the midwest is how it is today.
On Saturday, October 12, 2019, Pioneer Day comes back to Paso Robles! The day’s festivities start as early as 7:00 AM with the traditional Bean Cooking, followed by the Children’s Pet Show at 8:00 AM. Next up? The anticipated activity everyone has been waiting for: The Pioneer Day Parade at 10:00 AM.
The rest of the day follows with various events for everyone in the family which leads to conclude the event day around early mid-afternoon.
Of course, enjoying Pioneer Day is a single-day affair, but why not stay a while and enjoy some of the local cultures of Paso Robles. Nothing beats the wine in this wine country.
