This Saturday morning, take your family downtown to enjoy a festive parade along Congress Avenue!
The 26th annual Chuy’s Children Giving to Children Parade will start at the State Capitol at 11 a.m. on Saturday, November 29, 2014. Be sure to arrive early to snag a good seat, and don’t forget to bring along a new, unwrapped toy to donate to Operation Blue Santa, to brighten the holidays for an Austin area child. At one point during the parade, the floats will stop and attendants will gather up the gifts from spectators. It is a sight to see the piles of the presents being donated!
The parade will feature giant inflatable holiday floats, live music and dancing, marching bands, classic cars, and more. Just stake out a spot along Congress Avenue and watch the show as it passes you by. The parade will start at the Capitol at 11th and Congress, travel south on Congress to Cesar Chavez, and end just north of the bridge. It will last about an hour.
