Dallas Holiday Parade
By Jeffery Giles

 

HTEDance & Spirit Group, Inc. is hosting the annual Dallas Holiday Parade. The parade steps off at 10 a.m. This free event includes live music, amplified sound (beginning at 7 a.m. at Commerce St. and Akard St.), a parade featuring floats, bands, balloons, costume characters, animals (horses), and dance performances. The parade will be broadcast, and two production vehicles will be parked along the route at Jackson Street and Akard Street and at Young Street and Akard Street. Traffic signal arms/masts across Commerce Street will be removed to accommodate the inflatable balloons on Friday, Dec. 3, and reinstalled directly after the parade.

 

Merchandise, food and beverage (nonalcoholic) will be sold at Main Street Garden from 8 – 10 a.m. prior to the parade. Setup includes the erection of tents (ten – 10’x10’) and six food trucks.

 

Bleacher construction starts on Tuesday, Nov. 30. No company vehicles related to bleacher construction may block any lane before 9 a.m. and from 3:30 – 6:30 p.m. Ingress and egress must be provided to all pedestrians during set up of bleachers. Meters will be hooded with the progressive closure of parking lanes as detailed in the table and in the Parking section:
