The National Western Stock Show has canceled its annual parade, scheduled this year for Thursday, January 5.
“After several hours of gathering facts, we have decided to cancel the parade this Thursday," said Stock Show president and CEO Paul Andrews in a statement. "It will not be rescheduled. The risk of animal injury and injury to people is far too great with the 4 to 8 inches of snow predicted and six degree temperatures."
