Dubbed as the can’t-miss event of the holiday season, audiences will see spectacular, never-before-seen floats, giant illuminated balloons, antique cars, marching bands, equestrian units, horse-drawn carriages, and groups of carolers that will create the perfect “Postcard Christmas.” Santa and Mrs. Claus will also be making an appearance on the specially designed, LED-lit, grand finale float, sponsored by parade producers, Downtown Fort Worth Initiatives, Inc.
The XTO Energy Parade of Lights begins at 6:00 PM at the intersection of Weatherford Street and Houston Street. NOTE: This is a new start location and the route has changed as well! The parade proceeds east along Weatherford Street, turns south on Commerce and goes all the way to 9th Street. At 9th Street the parade turns west, proceeds past the Convention Center to Houston St., and then turns north on Houston Street to Weatherford St.
