WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. (AP) - Tens of thousands of people are expected to fill the Navajo town of Window Rock on Saturday for the tribe's largest fair parade.
Camping tents line the streets days ahead of the parade as people hope to secure prime viewing spots.
The parade is the one time of the year when traffic jams are common in Window Rock. The roads close early Saturday morning for the hours-long parade.
Saturday's events also include a carnival, rodeo, a fry bread contest, award presentations, exhibits and the introduction of the new Miss Navajo. Fair spokeswoman Geri Hongeva says up to 60,000 people are expected to attend the events.
The weeklong fair ends Sunday.

Hollywood icon Joan Rivers, 81, is reportedly on a slow road to recovery after she went into cardiac arrest at an Upper East Side doctor's office last week. While some reports indicate she is doing better, her daughter, Melissa Rivers, issued a statement on Tuesday saying Joan Rivers is on life support "at this time." Doctors were expected to slowly remove Rivers from a medically-induced coma on Tuesday to asses her brain functionality.
