As always, the parade is full of visual delights for the entire family; you’ll see giant balloons, floats, marching bands, children’s characters, and even classic cars with parade staples Elvis and Santa Claus! They’ll also be plenty of your favorite Austin hangouts represented in this year’s parade. In fact, be on the lookout for KGSR on the Shady Grove float featuring Ruby Jane!
The parade starts at 11am at the State Capitol and marches south on Congress Ave. to Cesar Chavez St. Check out the parade route on the right. At a designated time, the entire Parade will stop and Santa’s Helpers will assist children in giving their toy. All toys received at the Parade will be taken to Blue Santa Headquarters to be delivered to a child in need. One-third of the toys distributed by Blue Santa come from the Parade.
