“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."
The Stock Show Parade barbecue lunch will forge on, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on January 5 in the atrium of the Wells Fargo Building at 17th Street and Broadway. The lunch is open to the public and benefits the 4-H International Youth Group.
The 111th National Western Stock Show starts at 9 a.m. on Saturday, January 7, and runs through January 22. Find tickets at nationalwestern.com.
