Fort Worth residents ready for 2018 rodeo parade

January 8, 2018 by  

The Fort Worth Stock Show is presenting its All Western Parade, as its annual rodeo event kicks off once again.

The streets are expected to be filled with spectators anxious to view the annual parade that takes place every year on the first Saturday of the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo. No motorized vehicles are allowed in the parade, which draws approximately 100,000 viewers each year. Only horses and wagons pull the floats, along with the guests that contribute to the genuinely Western display. Marching teams and bands also join in the fun.

Reserved parade seating allows people to watch the event comfortably as it strolls through the streets of ‘Downtown Cowtown’. The parade festivities will also include balloon artists and face painters throughout Sundance Square Plaza. Photo opportunities will abound for anyone seeking interesting subjects for their calendars or other printing services.

No ticket sales are made on the day of the event (January 13), so locals be prepared to reserve all seating in advance. Seating is available at the Sundance Square Plaza for $25 each or at the Convention Center for $15. The purchase of a ticket includes general admission for one person to the stock showgrounds for any day of the event. The general admission tickets do not include admission to the rodeo performances. All tickets for the parade can be purchased through Ticketmaster.
