The GM Financial Parade of Lights celebrates its 38th year in Downtown Fort Worth on Sunday, November 22, 2020. This year’s “Hope and Joy for the Holidays”-themed parade will look quite different due to the pandemic, taking place inside the Fort Worth Convention Center in front of a virtual audience, and broadcast locally and on the Parade of Lights’ Facebook page.
