It's time again for the Southwest District Livestock Show And Rodeo which is coming to Lake Charles this weekend for the 78th year.  The rodeo will take place inside the Burton Coliseum in South Lake Charles starting Thursday night.

But before the performances start Thursday night, they kick off the festivities with a rodeo parade Thursday evening at 5pm.

The parade begins at the corner of Lagrange and Patrick Streets in Lake Charles.  The parade will then travel west on Lagrange to Ryan Street.

Once at Ryan street, the parade will head South down Ryan Street all the way to McNeese Street. Then the parade will head East on McNeese Street and end at McNeese stadium.

Then all fans will head to the Burton Coliseum tomorrow night for the first performance at 7:30 p.m. inside the Burton Coliseum
