Event Details

Gather up your family and friends and join us in downtown Fort Worth for the 36th Parade of Lights!  This year’s parade features spectacular floats, giant illuminated balloons, performing groups, local community groups and more.  The parade is produced by Downtown Fort Worth Initiatives, Inc. and the title sponsor for 2018 is GM Financial.

The fun begins at 6 p.m. at the intersection of Weatherford and Throckmorton streets and proceeds east along Weatherford, turns south on Commerce and goes all the way to 9th Street.  At 9th, the parade turns west, proceeds past the Tarrant County Convention Center to Houston Street and then turns north on Houston to 2nd Street.  Heads west on 2nd Street to Throckmorton Street, and turns South.  The parade ends at 3rd Street and Throckmorton Street and will turn west onto 3rd Street back to the staging area.  Sundance Square retailers and restaurants will be open for great holiday shopping and dining plus the public is invited to stop by the Sundance Square Plaza, visit with Santa, and enjoy all the new, sparkling holiday decorations.

Once again, Cowboy Santas’ volunteers will be collecting unwrapped toys (for up to 12 years of age) around the parade route starting at 5:30 p.m.  Toy donations must be new and cannot pose a health or safety risk to children.

Street seats are available for purchase if desired.  For more detailed information, please visit
