Our Christmas Traditions! the 31st annual Chesapeake Energy Parade of Lights, will be held November 29, in downtown Fort Worth, featuring Texas’ largest illuminated holiday procession with over 1 million lights. An extended route begins at Belknap and Throckmorton Streets and encompasses a 1.5-mile course of horse-drawn carriages, marching bands, strolling carolers, classic antique cars, equestrian units, characters dressed in holiday gear and nearly 100 floats.

A Holiday Fun Zone begins the festivities at 2 p.m. in General Worth Square, with children’s holiday craft-making, stage entertainment and food and beverages from downtown restaurants. Following the parade, a special viewing of the Dr. Seuss film, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, will be shown on a giant screen in General Worth Square.

The parade begins at 6 p.m. Ride the free Parade of Lights shuttle from Farrington Field to the ITC train and bus station and back following the parade.
