The Sundown Parade crowns the opening day of River Festival in Wichita, Kansas. The 2017 parade will begin 6:30PM on June 3rd. The route starts at 3rd & Main, travels down Main to Douglas, west on Douglas to Waco and north on Waco to 3rd. This and the fireworks are events which can be viewed without purchasing an admission button.

These photos were taken during the 2011 parade, which included over 60 entries and took about 1 hour. It was about 100 degrees, but a steady breeze kept the weather from being oppressive. The parade is followed by a fireworks display along the Arkansas River at 10PM. The fireworks is choreographed to a unique musical arrangement which is live simulcast on 97.1 BOB-FM.
