Mayor Michael Hancock
Denver's mayor was out in full Western regalia after declaring today "Dress Western Day."
Just a few of the many people who turned out today to see the National Western Stock Show kick off parade. As always, the parade included floats, horseback riders, plenty of cowboys and cowgirls, and a cattle drive with Texas longhorns being steered from Union Station down 17th Street starting at high noon.
