The benefit of living in a city is the sheer variety of experiences that holidays offer – from super healthy runs to out of this world magical festive experiences, art and craft experiences to stimulate the imagination and music to lift the spirit. Houston has something for everyone this Thanksgiving.
It is best to buy your tickets online now and get to your seat early, as there will be heavy traffic. The pre-parade entertainment starts at 8 am and the parade itself with the floats, gigantic balloons, marching bands, entertainers and more moves off at 9 am. Children need a ticket unless they are in a carrier or on an adult’s lap for the seated area but otherwise just bring down a blanket or lawn chairs so you can watch all the festivities along the route in comfort. There will be food trucks and vendors along the parade route.
