RICHARDSON – “There’s No Place Like Home” is the theme for the 49th Annual Christmas Parade taking place Saturday, Dec. 4 at 9 a.m. The parade will honor medical professionals who serve the Richardson community.

The year’s route starts at Cherrywood Dr. and will travel north on Coit Rd. until it ends at Melrose Rd.

“The amount of involvement within the different groups, between school groups, civic, and community organizations, it really does get everybody in the spirit of Christmas,” said Spencer Doyle, Supt. Of Recreation and Older Adults, Parks and Recreation Department.

A total of 52 groups and organizations will be part of this year’s parade. Like years past, each float will be judged, and awards will given out for overall originality, creativity, and uniqueness. There are also awards to floats that present an outstanding display of glitter, shimmer, and shine.
