This bright, blustery morning, Rocks Off ventured to Minute Maid Park to take in Houston's annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day parade, featuring Mixtape Messiah and Co-Grand Marshal Chamillionaire, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, Rockets mascot Clutch, the mighty U of H and Willowridge High School marching bands and lots more. Click here for a slideshow.

As soon as the parade was over, Chamillionaire - whose Fly Rydez custom detailing shop tricked out many of the parade vehicles - was already en route to Washington, D.C., where he will be one of the many performers at the Obama inaugural festivites. Cham has kindly agreed to keep a trip journal for Rocks Off, so stay tuned to see how H-town represents in Washington, D.C.
