Santa is cruising into Baytown to be part of Baytown's Christmas Parade. You can join him as part of the downtown parade on Thursday, December 7 at 6:30pm.
For Baytown's Diamond Anniversary, the theme for the 2023 Christmas Parade is "Let's Sparkle, Shimmer, and Shine for Baytown's 75th Christmas". You can start searching for the perfect decorations for your parade entry now! The deadline to enter is November 30th.
After submitting your parade entry, you are asked to attend a parade meeting at the Baytown Community Center on Monday, December 4th at 6:30 pm. You will receive a refund of your parade entry fee after check-in. You will receive a packet with your parade number, roadblock pass, street closure times, and parade map. We will answer any questions you may have.
All entries must be decorated, so you're encouraged to come up with fun and exciting ideas to decorate each and all aspects of your parade entry. We will have parade marshals to ensure everyone is decked out in the holiday spirit. If you have to ask if your entry is decorated enough, the answer is it's not. Non-decorated entries will be removed from the parade route as needed. Please do not include a "Santa" on your entry. This honor is reserved for the real parade Santa who is at the end of the parade each year.
