Christmas Parade and Tree Lighting

Tuesday, December 6, 2016

Bundle up the family and come out to one of the largest lighted Christmas parades in Texas! For many years, the annual Christmas parade has brought delight and holiday cheer to Temple residents. On Tuesday, December 6th, at 6:30 p.m., the tradition continues as more than 100 parade entries, which includes colorful floats, marching bands, and decorated rides, make their way through downtown Temple, each covered with hundreds of twinkling lights! Join your community and watch local businesses and dignitaries parade through downtown Temple in celebration of the Christmas season and also to welcome Santa Claus to town.

Festivities will begin at 6:15 p.m. on Tuesday, December 6th with the lighting of the City’s Christmas tree located in the municipal parking lot of City Hall (2 N. Main Street). The parade will begin immediately following the tree lighting at 6:30 p.m. The parade route will start at Adams Avenue near North 8th Street and travel along Adams to 23rd Street, turn right on 23rd street and disband at Temple High School.
