69th annual Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo Parade

When: Tue., July 7 2009

At the age of 15, Dale McCracken transformed an old Opal Cadet station wagon into a zany clown ambulance and never looked back. Three decades later, he's America's reigning Gizmo the Clown, one of the fine entertainers at this year's Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo. Sure, there are Gizmo the Clowns up in Vancouver, British Columbia, and down in Sydney, Australia, but McCracken looks like he could easily kick both their asses at one time. This year's rodeo revs up with a 6:30 p.m. parade downtown and continues to run through Saturday.
