The Parade steps off at Merced on the Fulton Mall at 11am and proceeds South down the Fulton Mall ~ past the Downtown Fresno Ice Rink and turns East at Kern Street and finishes at Kern and "N" Street.

The parade takes place rain, shine or snow!


Thanks to everyone who came out to see last year's 84th annual downtown Fresno Christmas Parade. We had some truly incredible entries marching in the parade, including 2013’s award winners:

Grand Prize:  City of Fresno Parks, After School, Recreation & Community Services.

The most festive entry by The Fresno Grizzlies.

The bests marching band came from Roosevelt High School & Edison High School.

The best float by Sunnyside Convalescent Hospital.

And honorable mentions go out to Girls Scout Troop 2772, City of Fresno Water Conservation Program, Fresno County Office of Education & Caporales de Fresno. 


We greatly appreciate all of the support of our 2013 Parade sponsors and all the volunteers who made this parade possible:
