GM Financial Fort Worth Parade of Lights

The Parade of Lights illuminates the streets of downtown Fort Worth. This year's “Making Spirits Bright”-themed parade marks its 39th year as the city’s official kick-off to the holiday season, and attendees can expect more than 100 festive floats adorned with holiday decor and over half a million sparkling lights. What began in 1983 with a crowd of only 25,000 spectators and 25 floats has grown to become Fort Worth’s most beloved holiday tradition and Texas' largest illuminated holiday procession. In 2020, due to COVID-19, the Parade took place inside the Fort Worth Convention Center in front of a virtual audience, but garnered an Emmy nomination for its live broadcast on KTXA-TV and Facebook. In 2021, North Texas families can once again gather to experience the melodies of energetic marching bands, 100-plus professionally designed floats, sparkling antique cars, precision equestrian units, festive horse-drawn carriages, and carolers spreading holiday cheer along the parade route. The night concludes with Santa and Mrs. Claus appearing on the specially designed, LED-lit, grand finale float.
