Attend the Annual Houston Thanksgiving Day Parade

Attend the Annual Houston Thanksgiving Day Parade

If you are looking for a Thanksgiving event in Houston that is fun for the entire family, check out the annual city of Houston Thanksgiving Day Parade. The 67-year holiday tradition showcases the Houston communities and provides entertainment for more than 200,000 people each year.

The annual parade started in 1949, when Santa arrived at the Union Station and rode his sleigh to the downtown Foley's. The parade has seen many changes over the years since then, but it remains a tradition of entertaining parade-goers that line the streets. There is also general seating available for purchase for those who prefer to not stand.

The parade starts at the corner of Lamar St. and Smith St. and then makes a right turn on Walker Street before traveling blocks down Milam St. It then travels down Pease St., Louisiana St., and Clay St. before finishing at the corner of Smith St. and Dallas St. The parade is filled with floats, bands, cheerleaders, dance lines, and live music. Parade-goers will also witness the Chinese Acrobatic Show, Houston Astros Orbit, Houston Astros Shooting Stars, the Budweiser Clydesdales, and Santa.

The parade is held on Thanksgiving morning each year at 9:00 a.m. and is located in downtown Houston. The event is free for all and fun for all ages.
