68th Annual H-E-B Thanksgiving Parade

H-E-B Thanksgiving Day Parade

Join us Thanksgiving morning, November 23, 2017, at 9:00 a.m., for the H-E-B Thanksgiving Day Parade. The Parade is located in downtown Houston and is free for all. For those who would like to purchase general seating, there will  be an opportunity to do so on this site in the fall.

The Houston Thanksgiving Day Parade began in 1949, when Santa arrived at Union Station and rode his sleigh to the downtown Foley’s.  Since then, the Thanksgiving Day parade has gone through a few changes but today, it remains a 68 year-old holiday tradition showcasing the Houston community and entertaining parade-goers lining the streets on Thanksgiving morning. Join us again this year as we embrace the holiday spirit on Thursday, November 23, 2017 with the 68th Annual H-E-B Thanksgiving Day Parade.

The 68th Annual H-E-B Thanksgiving Day Parade is produced by the Mayor's Office of Special Events, Susan Christian, Director and Parade Producer.
