Citing “dangerously low temperatures,” the National Western Stock Show has canceled Thursday’s Stock Show parade in Denver.
Snow is expected Wednesday evening, but the larger problem, at least according to the Stock Show, is the single-digit temperatures and high winds, which will make for icy conditions.
“Due to the risk for the parade entries traveling to Denver in high-profile vehicles hauling animals and hitches, as well as the risk for the animals along the parade route, the decision has been made to cancel,” said Paul Andrews, Stock Show president and CEO, in a statement.
The Stock Show will commence Jan. 8 at 9 a.m. and run for 16 days. Find tickets at nationalwestern.com.
