H-E-B Thanksgiving Day Parade

100th Holiday Spectacular

On Saturday, November 30th, head to downtown Houston and celebrate the start of the Christmas season with Mayor Turner. This free family event includes the annual lighting of the 65-foot Christmas tree. There will also be live musical performance.


While Houston doesn’t get very much winter weather, you can still experience the fun of ice skating outdoors at Discovery Green in downtown Houston. This large outdoor skating arena is open November 15 through February 2. It is even open on Thanksgiving Day if you want to burn off some of your pie calories.
