It doesn't matter if you say, "Feliz Navidad", "Joyeux Noel", "Frohe Weihnachten", or "Buon Natale", it's still Merry Christmas! Christmas is celebrated all over the world in many, many different ways. Join us for what promises to be the best parade ever. Help us spark the magic of Christmas and the excitement of the season during the Miracles Christmas Parade.

Please join us on 34th Street in Lubbock for our version of "A Family Christmas." The parade starts promptly at 6 p.m. and includes lighted units for that extra special effect. Spectators start gathering early in the evening to get the perfect spot to watch marching bands, fire trucks, families, beauty queens, horses, dozens of decorated floats, honored guest and much more.

The primary reason for the parade is to give back to the community and to promote an atmosphere of family fun, family entertainment, and togetherness. Each year, the parade will benefit the United States Marines "Toys for Tots". Each year, we will work to make Christmas a magical season for families on the South Plains, and a time of sharing with those in need.

There will be a "Toys for Tots" campaign conducted by the U.S. Marines and the Miracles Christmas Parade. Families will be invited to bring toys to the parade. The U.S. Marines will march along the route and collect toys from the attending families. Together, the citizens of Lubbock and surrounding communities will "Fill the Float".

Hot chocolate, coffee, and hot apple cider will be sold at various locations along the parade route to benefit Lubbock charitable organizations. Including Lubbock Independent School Bands.

The Miracles Christmas Parade promises to become one of the largest and most important events in the region. Over 30,000 people attending the parade each year. Each year, the event will grow until it is the primary Christmas event in West Texas and Eastern New Mexico. Families have begun a tradition of "camping out" at the same location each year. Spectators will gather along 34th Street to enjoy this new holiday event.

    The June 12 summit, planned for Singapore, offers a historic chance for peace on the peninsula - but also the risk of an epic diplomatic failure that would allow the North to revive and advance its nuclear weapons program.
