North 65 Chamber Announces 2023 Isanti Rodeo Jubilee Days Parade Awards

North 65 Chamber Announces 2023 Isanti Rodeo Jubilee Days Parade Awards
July 6, 2023— (Isanti, MN) The North 65 Chamber hosted the Isanti Rodeo Jubilee Days Parade on July 6, 2023. This annual event is a community favorite, drawing an estimated crowd of 10,000 who enjoyed watching from their front lawns and street curbs as the parade wound its way through downtown Isanti.
Kicking off the parade with perfect weather was the T-6 Thunder Fly-Over, sponsored by Strike Life Tributes Funeral and Cremation Services.
This year’s parade Grand Marshal was Rum River BMX.  Rum River BMX is a pedal bike racing facility in Isanti, sanctioned by USABMX. They are a team of volunteers, guided by a Board of Directors, providing area residents an exciting family-oriented activity that teaches the value of hard work, dedication, and perseverance. They strive to instill a sense of community involvement in their activities and provide a structured reward system for riders as they achieve success.  Rum River BMX is one of only 13 indoor tracks in the U.S., making it a destination that brings in people, and revenue, from all over the country to our local community throughout the year. They were recently named the North 65 Chamber’s 2023 Small Business of the Year.  Rum River BMX was chosen for the honor of Grand Marshal because of the awareness they bring to Isanti through the regional, state, and national races they host; for providing a quality sporting experience that brings all ages in our community together; and notably for running an exceptional organization with a volunteer team.
