This weekend’s forecast for Fort Worth shows a sunny Saturday for All-Western Stock Show Parade, which was canceled last year due to frigid weather and dangerous winds.
This will be the first parade since 2020, with more than 2,000 horses and the TCU marching band in downtown Fort Worth. The parade starts at 11 a.m. and kicks off the Stock Show & Rodeo, which runs through Feb. 4.
Saturday’s forecast in Fort Worth shows a sunny day with a high near 67 degrees. Winds will be 5 to 15 mph from the south with gusts as high as 20 mph.
The cool weekend will follow a warm few days, with temperatures in the lower 80s on Tuesday and Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.
Matt Brockman, who is the communications director for the Stock Show, said there is always a plan for challenges due to weather. However, that doesn’t break the excitement of the first parade in three years due to COVID and last year’s blustery weather.
“This time it looks like Mother Nature is going to break in our favor,” Brockman said. “And it just gives us a lot to be excited about.”
Brockman said the team is blessed to have an enthusiastic and loyal group of fans who come out for the parade, a tradition that dates back to the late 1800s.
“I mean, I think its uniqueness lends itself to something that attracts a solid following, a faithful following,” he said. Reserved seating parade tickets are available through Ticketmaster.
