Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

The National Western Stock Show parade moseyed down 17th Street yesterday, and Mayor Michael Hancock was in the lead, waving to the crowds. He had reason to smile: In November, voters approve plans to extend Denver's lodging tax indefinitely, assigning it to the new National Western Center that will not only give the stock show new facilities, but open up a whole portion of north Denver to festivals and other activities...including development. The stock show runs through January 24 at the soon-to-be-redeveloped National Western Complex; keep reading for more looks at the parade.

Now the see the National Western parade slide show here.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
