Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.-- The 64th Annual Benton Franklin Fair and Rodeo is only a few days away now but events kicked off Saturday in Downtown Kennewick. The parade's theme was Rock with the Stock.

Hundreds lined the streets as royalty, horses and even our very own Shane Edinger took part.

One young parade goer named Kate says her favorite part of the parade involves sweets.

"What I like about the parade is when they throw candy," says Kate.

Saturday was also the 5th Annual Rodeo Fun Run. It's a 5K race that began and finished on Clover Island.
