Two upcoming parades celebrate the rich heritage and traditions of Fort Worth. You won’t want to miss these events:
Fort Worth Stock Show Parade
The Fort Worth Stock Show’s All Western Parade is scheduled for 11 a.m. Jan. 18 in downtown Fort Worth. Nearly 100,000 spectators line the streets of downtown Cowtown to watch this spectacular annual event. Plenty of horses and other livestock can be seen — but no motorized vehicles are allowed.
To reserve parade seating, contact the ticket office at 817-877-2420 And keep your seat ticket because it also serves as general admission to the Stock Show grounds any day during the 23-day run (rodeo performances are not included).

Martin Luther King Jr. Day Parade
Fort Worth’s annual tribute to civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. steps off at 11 a.m. Jan. 20.
The parade begins at Ninth and Commerce streets, heads west on Ninth Street, north on Houston Street, east on Belknap Street, south on Commerce Street, west on Weatherford Street and south on Main Street before ending at Sundance Square Plaza.
This year’s parade will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the historic March on Washington.
