DENVER (AP) — Denver has returned to its roots with the annual National Western Stock Show.

Texas Longhorn cattle were driven through the streets of downtown Thursday at noon as part of the stock show’s annual parade. The parade also included marching bands, floats and performing cowgirls and cowboys.

The stock show, now in its 105th year, officially opens Saturday and runs through Jan. 23. It features rodeos as well as events like sheep shearing contests, horse shows and dog agility games.
