A note from the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo:
For only the second time in recent history, the All Western Parade of the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo is cancelled due to the threat of excessive winds. The arrival of a strong cold front expected to hit downtown Fort Worth coinciding at the parade’s start time prompted the Stock Show to decide conditions for parade spectators, participants and livestock will be unsafe.
The City of Fort Worth’s Office of Emergency Management and Stock Show officials monitored the weather forecast throughout Friday, communicating frequently with the National Weather Service and ultimately made the decision to cancel the parade at 5:30 p.m.
“While the parade is a celebratory event kicking off our annual Stock Show & Rodeo, we need to make decisions in the best interests of everyone involved,” said Brad Barnes, president and general manager of the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo. “Winds are estimated to be sustained at 20 to 30 miles per hour with gusts exceeding 35. The challenging effect of the Northwest winds through downtown skyscrapers will only make these conditions worse.”
