The 31st annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day march, parade and rally steps off at 11 a.m. Jan. 18, the holiday set aside to honor the civil rights leader.

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. 16 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 Stock Show 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).
