East Texas communities will be coming together to usher in Christmas and the holidays with annual Christmas parades! These parades often bring Santa Claus to town too, if only for a brief visit before heading back to the North Pole to prepare for Christmas eve!

Santa's going to be pretty busy over the next week or so and he makes an appearance at all of these parades while making sure everything runs smoothly back North! Here's a list of East Texas Christmas parades and we're pretty sure the jolly old man will be at least a brief appearance at each of them!
