KILLEEN, Texas (Dec. 10, 2021) – The City of Killeen invites the community out to the 58th annual Christmas Parade tomorrow, Saturday, December 11th at 1 p.m. in Historic Downtown Killeen.
The parade will begin on Avenue D and 2nd Street and feature Santa Claus on a firetruck, reindeer in a corvette and Fort Hood’s cavalry horse unit, among many others. There will also be dozens of floats and performers.
The Killeen Police Department and our Emergency Management team will provide appropriate security measures to ensure everyone’s safety and make sure attendees are able to focus on having a great time.
The parade theme is, “On Ice,” and participants were encouraged to incorporate it in their displays. This year’s parade route is slightly different than previous years and the community is encouraged to view the full map at KilleenTexas.gov/REC.
The City wants to remind attendees and businesses that vehicles parked within the parade route after 11:30a.m. will be blocked from leaving until the parade ends at approximate 4p.m., so should plan accordingly.
