KX Broadcasts Mandan Independence Day Parade
The tradition continues with the KX Television Network again broadcasting this year’s Mandan Rodeo Days Fourth of July Parade LIVE and in High Definition. It will air uninterrupted Friday July 4th, from 11 AM to 1 PM across all of Western North Dakota. See every one of the more than 150 units roll down Main Avenue in Mandan during the two hour broadcast. The KX Network will use three HD TV cameras at both street level and high above the parade to catch all the action. Anchoring the coverage will be KX News’ Tom Gerhardt, Amber Schatz, Sarah Gustin and Meteorologist Tom Schrader.
Mandan, ND is the place to be on July 4th, however, long lines of traffic and available parking can be a real challenge for many. The Mandan Parade Committee is providing free busing to and from Mandan on July 4th. Busing runs continuously from 7:00 a.m. to 5 p.m. Simply catch a bus at Bismarck State College Library Parking Lot, State Bank of North Dakota or the Bismarck Elks in Bismarck. You can also park your car at the Mandan Middle School (north side of Mandan at the Sunset exit) and ride in comfort to your favorite spot along Main Street. Lawn chairs and other essentials are allowed on the bus.
