CHICO, Calif. - Thousands of Chico residents attended the 101st “Pioneer Days Parade” with the theme of education being front and center of the event on Saturday.

Groups such as Chico High School, MONCA, Rosedale Elementary School and the Chico Shriners Mini Car Club made appearances.

The superintendent of the Chico Unified School District and the presidents of Chico State and Butte College were honorary grand marshals.

Some locals came out for a beautiful day to celebrate Chico’s history.

“It’s great to be out here at the pioneer day parade. I'm here with my daughters and my niece and we're just having fun! We're out here supporting my daughter's elementary school and it's just a good day!” said Meegan Jessee, a Chico resident.

Action News Now anchor Debbie Cobb was one of the moderators of the event.

Our very own Linda Watkins-Bennett, James Villalobos and AJ Abell also attended at the fun parade.
