Today's parade is a tribute to that past. Tourists line both sides of the street to watch. I really enjoyed my day in the Stockyards. You can feel the history of Cowtown. I learned that Fort Worth is more than highways and shopping centers.
Here is a view of the pens that used to hold cattle.
Mission Creek flows underneath and behind all the activity in the Stockyards.
On Exchange Street, stands a statue of legendary bulldogger Bill Pickett.
This African-American cowboy invented the bulldogging technique. His method required biting steer on the lips to get them to submit. He learned that from the dogs that helped him in his work.
