Mayor Sylvester Turner will be kicking off this holiday season with the 68th Annual H-E-B Thanksgiving Day Parade. This year’s parade celebrates Houston’s strength and resilience with a focus on family.
This year’s Grand Marshal, Chandra Wilson, is better known as Dr. Miranda Bailey on ABC’s Television Drama Grey’s Anatomy. Wilson is a Houstonian and graduate from Houston’s High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, or HSPVA.
You don’t want to miss this yearly event which will feature a grand variety of floats, balloons, marching bands, performing groups, and more! Among those floats will be Tom Turkey and Santa Claus and his high-flying reindeer.
