Officials with the Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo say the 'All Western Parade' that was scheduled for Saturday has been canceled due to weather.

A Wind Advisory has been issued for all of North Texas on Saturday as a powerful cold front moves through the area. Temperatures on Saturday will stay steady in the low to mid-30s. Wind chills will be in the teens. Clouds will also increase behind the front and wind gusts will be as high as 50 to 55 mph during the day.

“The safety of our guests is always top of mind for us and we never make these decisions lightly,” said Stock Show President and General Manager, Bradford S. Barnes. “For the sake of everyone, participants including horses and guests, we firmly believe this is the best decision from a safety standpoint.”

After a one-year hiatus, the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo finally got back underway on Friday. Officials say they are working to keep visitors safe with special air filtration technology, but there is no mask mandate or vaccine mandate. The Fort Worth Stock Show runs through February 5th.

On Thursday the City of Fort Worth announced that the Martin Luther King Jr. Day Parade has been canceled.
