It'll be just like that parade scene from Ferris Bueller's Day Off, but without Matthew Broderick and with lots more cowboy hats. Head down to Fair Park after the parade to meet the new and improved Big Tex at 2 p.m.

The parade will also be held on a nightly basis at 7:15 p.m. at Fair Park through Oct. 20.
