Tampa’s Christmas Parade will roll out in on Saturday, December 7, at 11 a.m.

Event Details

This year’s parade is the largest Christmas Parade ever held with 95 colorful units. There will be beads, candy and other goodies tossed to onlookers as the floats, Krewes, dance groups, and others take part in this much anticipated annual event.

The parade begins at Madison and Pierce streets. Heads west on Madison Street then turns north onto Ashley Drive, and ends at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park. The best viewing area is along Madison Street from Pierce Street to Tampa Street.

Parade viewers are encouraged to arrive by 9 a.m. to avoid road closure and to get a good spot along the parade route. Suggested parking options:
• Royal Street, 1200 N. Tampa Street
• Jackson Street, E. Kennedy Blvd & Jackson Street
• Ft. Brooke Garage, 107 N. Franklin Street

After the parade, the fun continues in Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park with 38th Annual Santa Fest. Bring your little elves to Santa Fest for a free keepsake photo with Santa sponsored by the Friends of Tampa Recreation; continuous holiday entertainment, interactive games, bounce houses, a rock wall, and make-n-take crafts. The festival continues until 4 p.m.
