Parade Information

The GM Financial Parade of Lights was a great success, and we’re already planning for next year’s parade on November 22, 2020! The 37th edition of this Downtown Fort Worth signature event, with GM Financial as our title sponsor, featured local music throughout the parade, including pre- and post- parade.  Signature floats, giant illuminated balloons, local performing groups, community organizations and more traveled throughout Downtown in celebration of the holidays. We hope you will continue this new tradition for the years to come!

For a complete look back at the parade, take a look at our online gallery (photos by Anthony Mosely).

The Sundance Square Christmas Tree tree lighting ceremony will take place on Saturday, November 21, at 6 p.m. Visit for more info about photos with Santa.
