Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo Parade
I have lived in Fort Worth for almost 10 years now and I have never bothered to go to the Stock Show parade. Some photography friends were meeting up this year to take photos at the parade, so I decided it was time I attend. While it's really cool to see all the cowboys and horses parading through downtown, and it's fun to think about all the sand truck that had to sand the roads and then turn around and clean it all back up after, and it's probably a big honor to get to ride in the parade, let me tell you this: it's pretty much TWO HOURS of people riding horses through downtown Fort Worth with the occasional chuck wagon and marching band thrown in. TWO hours. It was the longest parade ever, and we weren't sure that it would ever end.
