Parade Information

We're excited to announce a new Title Sponsor for the Parade of Lights, XTO Energy!  XTO's campus includes many of the buildings along our traditional parade route, and is a perfect fit for Fort Worth's holiday celebration.  Welcome, XTO!

With over 100 highly illuminated entries, the Parade of Lights will kick off the Holiday Season in style.  From Belknap Street to Commerce Street, and around 9th Street, then over to Houston Street and up to Weatherford, the parade will transform Downtown with the theme of, "Together for the Holidays!"

Our online ticketing system is open, featuring Gold Seats, front row seats and new Premier Seats at the Renaissance Worthington Hotel!  This year, we're bringing back our toy collection before the parade by the Cowboy Santas.  

NEW FOR 2014! Bring your family earlier in the day to Celebrate the Holidays Together Downtown, and make a day of it.  Avoid the crowds by parking early or using our expanded Route 7 bus service (which runs from Farrington Field beginning at 2:00 PM), and enjoy lunch at hundreds of great restaurants or take advantage of some early bird, "Black Friday," shopping deals at one of our incredible array of Downtown retailers.  

With a reserved seat at the parade, you can relax during the day at the new Sundance Square Plaza and take in the sights and sounds of a Downtown bright with the Holiday spirit, and know your seat at one of the top Holiday Parades in America is waiting just for you!

JUST ANNOUNCED!  Grammy-nominated and Emmy Award-winning Miguel Harth-Bedoya, a critically acclaimed conductor and recording artist, has been selected as the grand marshal for the 2014 XTO Energy Parade of Lights

We hope you'll join us this year!
