The Annual Temple Tree Lighting and Christmas Parade has brought delight and holiday cheer to Temple residents for many years. On Monday, December 7th, at 6:30 p.m. the tradition will continue as dozens of colorful floats, marching bands, and decorated rides make their way through downtown Temple, each covered with hundreds of lights!

Join the community to watch local businesses, groups, and dignitaries parade through Downtown Temple in celebration of Christmas and to welcome Santa Claus to Central Texas. 

Immediately before the parade, we will light up the Municipal Building's decorations and the City's Christmas tree.
