This Sunday the annual GM Financial Parade of Lights will take place in downtown Fort Worth, starting at 6:00 pm. The parade will make its way through the streets of downtown, with over 100 groups participating, including the Paschal Marching Band. This year the parade will be celebrating 100 years of Cook Children’s hospital.

Be sure to come early because Sundance Square and all of downtown will be decorated for the holidays. Head over to Taco Diner or Corner Bakery for a pre-parade meal, or grab some Starbucks to keep you warm in the low temperatures.

The lighting of the Sundance Square Christmas Tree is scheduled for Saturday, November 17, so stop by to relax and admire the tree, which will stay up until January 2.

The festivities start at 5:30 when the “Cowboy Santas” ride around the parade route and collect donations of toys for children in need. Bring a new toy for a child up to 12 years old and help make someone’s holiday season a little more special!

The parade will begin with the Fort Worth Mounted Police Color Guard, which will be followed by many floats, cars, horses, and people decorated with brightly-colored lights. The

Paschal Marching Band will be the fourth group in the parade and the lead band, so be sure to arrive in time to support your fellow Panthers! Santa and Mrs. Clause will bring the night to a close and the parade will end at 3rd street.

Seats can be reserved for as low as $12.95 a piece. There is also standing room available. It is recommended to be parked by 4:00 pm as it becomes very crowded. Parking and shuttle buses will be available from Farrington Field starting at 2:00 pm.
