This year’s “Making Spirits Bright” parade marks its 39th year as Fort Worth’s kickoff to the holiday season, and attendees can expect more than 100 festive floats adorned with holiday decor and over half a million sparkling lights.

What began in 1983 with a crowd of only 25,000 spectators and 25 floats has grown to become a beloved holiday tradition and Texas; largest illuminated holiday procession. In 2020, due to COVID-19, the parade took place inside the Fort Worth Convention Center in front of a virtual audience.

In 2021, North Texas families can once again gather to experience the melodies of energetic marching bands, 100-plus professionally designed floats, sparkling antique cars, precision equestrian units, festive horse-drawn carriages and carolers spreading holiday cheer along the parade route. The night will conclude with Santa and Mrs. Claus appearing on a specially designed, LED-lit grand finale float.
