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.
