Houston Thanksgiving Day Parade

Houston’s Thanksgiving Parade is a highlight of the city’s annual calendar.

Around 3000 participants put on a show for 400,000 spectators, kicking off the holiday season with a procession of floats, giant balloon figures, marching bands and drill teams that fills the streets of downtown Houston. A new parade route takes the procession in an easterly direction along Texas, Main and Dallas Streets, ending near the convention center.

Established in 1949, the parade now pulls in not only hundreds of thousands of spectators, but millions of television viewers.
