If you love all things Christmas, prepare yourself because Downtown Dallas will be the perfect place to feel festive next month. So rock that ugly sweater and comfy sneakers and get ready to witness a true wonder. Dallas Holiday Parade this December is the most festive event ever.

Festive floats, marching bands, dance teams, and giant balloons will fill Downtown Dallas this December 7th. The colorful parade is the largest one-day outdoor event in Dallas. It starts at 10 a.m. and lasts about two hours and the route begins at Commerce and Houston streets.

Get ready to have tons of fun and, of course, meet Santa and Mrs. Claus. You can enjoy the parade for free, but you can also purchase bleacher seatings along the route to have a better view. The admission tickets start at $20.

As this type of event is usually very crowded, the advice is that you carry few things with you. If you choose to see the event for free, make sure you arrive early to ensure a good spot so you don't miss a thing. You can bring chairs or blankets to sit on. And don't forget that "happy holidays" mood. 

You can bring water and some snacks too, but if you prefer to eat on the premises, the are many restaurants in the area that will be open close to the parade route. In addition, there will be food trucks and vendors at Belo Garden and Main Street Garden.    

This massive event has been happening for 30 years so it has become a great tradition in the city. You will probably be one of the over 450,000 spectators from all over the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and North Texas that come to kick-off the holiday season at the iconic celebration.
