  • Arrive early if you want to park. Look for street parking, check the signs and pay the meter (or find a paid lot).  You will need to pay for parking (~$2/hour).
  • Take METRORail to Main Street Square station if you want to avoid the traffic/parking. (See HOW to ride METRORail HERE.)
  • If you arrive early, you can find a front row seat… you may also get a spot on the inside of the parade route… which will be hard to reach by late-comers.  See the route HERE.

The Houston HEB Thanksgiving Parade is this Thursday at 9:00am on the streets of Downtown.  The parade starts at 9:00am and about 400,000 people will attend.

General admission is free and you can view our tips from last year HERE.  Our biggest tip is to go on the Discovery Green side of the parade route.  Lots of people will be coming from the METRORail tracks, so if you can get to the other side of the parade route, you will have a much better view.
