Killeen is holding their 56th Annual Christmas Parade on Saturday, December 8th. The parade will make it's way through Downtown at 4:30 p.m., and the public is invited to line the streets for this Central Texas holiday classic.

The parade will be led by co-grand marshals; BG Miles Brown, 1st Cavalry Division Deputy Commanding General Support, and Charlie Watts, 2018 Roy J. Smith Award winner.

Numerous float entries into the parade will shine their lights up and down the streets of Killeen, with this year's theme being "A Texas Christmas." There will be a combination of floats, performers, and vehicles to wow the crowd.

The parade route will run through Avenue D, beginning at College Street, than take a left turn on Gray Street, left on Sprott Ave., and finally a left turn onto 2nd street.

There will be several food and craft vendors on hand available before and after the running of the Christmas parade. If you are thinking about attending, you may want to get their early to get a good spot.
