The annual Houston Thanksgiving parade was cancelled Thursday due to weather

HOUSTON – The City of Houston’s 72nd Annual H-E-B Thanksgiving Day Parade was canceled Thursday due to storms around the Houston area.

The parade was supposed to take place at 9 a.m. in the heart of downtown Houston, featuring elaborate floats, marching bands, flying balloons and other local entries.

“While we are disappointed that we are unable to commence with the H-E-B Thanksgiving Day Parade, we will always err on the side of caution in order to ensure that our parade participants and patrons are safe,” said Susan Christian, Director of the Mayor’s Office of Special Events and parade producer.

This year’s Thanksgiving Day parade would have been the city’s first public event since the pandemic.

The mayor’s office of Special Events will refund the face value of purchased tickets through Etix.
