65th Annual H-E-B Thanksgiving Day Parade: Houston on Parade

Plan on getting to the 65th Annual H-E-B Thanksgiving Day Parade: Houston on Parade early if you want to claim a good spot to watch the festivities. Expect to see marching bands, drill teams, huge floats and balloons, along with notable celebrities such as our own Mayor Annise D. Parker, the stars from TLC’s television series The Little Couple, Bill Klein and Dr. Jennifer Arnold along with their children, Will and Zoey, and, yes, Santa Claus. The fun is all free, but the Thanksgiving Day Parade is one of the most well-attended in Texas, so plan accordingly: Use Metro and give yourself plenty of extra time to find a great viewing spot.

9 a.m. to noon. Downtown Houston. For information, call 832-393-0868 or visit houstontx.gov. Free.
