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. 14 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.

The parade starts at the corner of Weatherford and Main streets and ends at Houston and Bluff streets.

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).

Learn about all the western activities coming up at the Stock Show, Jan. 13-Feb. 4.

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. 16.

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 with a rally at Sundance Square Plaza. Learn more.
