You’re invited to the 88th Annual Downtown Fresno Christmas Parade!

The Downtown Fresno Partnership invites you to the 88th Annual Downtown Fresno Christmas Parade, December 2, 2017.  This Christmas the parade returns to its original location, the newly (re)opened Fulton Street! This year’s theme is “A Funky Fulton Christmas.”

About the Theme
This year’s theme is all about music and dancing, paying homage to the great musical minds of the mid-1960s who brought us that sweet mixture of soul, jazz, and R&B. We know what you’re thinking…didn’t Fulton Street become Fulton Mall in the mid-1960s? Yes, you are correct! We’re celebrating the return of Fulton Street the best way that we can think of, a Funky Fulton Christmas. Come dance with us on December 2, 2017.
