The Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo’s All-Western Parade will go on as planned at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 13. However, due to the explosion at the Sandman Signature Fort Worth Hotel earlier this week, the route has been slightly modified.

The parade — which is projected to feature 3,000 horses — will start at its usual location at the intersection of Main and Weatherford Streets, south of the Tarrant County Courthouse.

It will run south to the convention center and then turn east on 9th Street — rather than heading west toward Houston Street as originally planned. After one block, the parade will then turn north on Commerce and return to Weatherford Street.


The parade will follow the route highlighted in green.
