In what seems like already a lifetime ago, a deranged gunman killed six people and injured 18 more in a shooting spree one quiet Saturday morning in January.

What followed was a month-long display of community solidarity and support for the heroism that was displayed on a Safeway parking lot that fateful morning.

Today, La Fiesta de los Vaqueros celebrated their 86th annual event, starting with a tribute to those who died and the heroes from that morning.

Here is just a glimpse of some of the scenes at today's Rodeo Parade.
