Lubbock has many Christmas traditions, and this spectacular one helps children all over West Texas.
The annual Miracles Christmas Parade is a two-mile Christmas light extravaganza with over 38,000 spectators. This year’s parade happens Saturday, Dec. 12 at 6 p.m.
It’s a free community event and family-friendly. Spectators are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy to donate to the U.S. Marines along the route for their annual Toys For Tots drive.
The theme this year is Festival of Lights, and the participants surely will not disappoint. The deadline to enter a parade float is Monday, Dec. 7 at 5 p.m.
You can fill out an application at the official parade website.
Spectators are encouraged to arrive early along the parade route, which stretches two miles from Avenue Q to Memphis. You can bring chairs, your own food and beverages, pretty much whatever will help you and your family stay warm and comfortable.
If you arrive early enough, you can park in merchant’s parking lots along the parade route.
