Join the town of Flower Mound in celebrating its 30th annual Christmas Parade from 6 to 9 p.m. Dec. 7.
This year's theme will be "The Twelve Days of Christmas." The nighttime parade will feature lighted floats parading down Spinks Road to Gerault Park. At Gerault Park, there will be a tree lighting ceremony with choir performances, pictures with Santa Claus, kids' activities, local vendors, food trucks and more.
During the parade, the Flower Mound Summit Club will be accepting canned good donations along the parade route to benefit Christian Community Action.
