Where’s a Good Place to Watch the Pa­rade?

Public News (Houston) - - PUBLIC NEWS EVENTS -

Where's a Good Place to Watch the Pa­rade? We get that ques­tion a lot. First of all, know­ing the route is help­ful. The pa­rade starts at 2 pm from Cham­pion For­est and ends at Kuyk­endahl. You'll need to get into place early be­cause FM 1960 will be closed from 1 to 5 pm. If you are most in­ter­ested see­ing the Bud­weiser Cly­des­dales, you might want to pick a spot at the be­gin­ning of the pa­rade where you may be able to see the Bud­weiser crew get­ting the horses and wagon, called a “hitch,” ready to go. You'll also get a lit­tle longer look at them as they slowly en­ter the pa­rade route from the Wells Fargo park­ing lot at FM 1960 @ Cham­pion For­est. One way to find a good place is to ask your friends who have been to the pa­rade be­fore. Many peo­ple have a fa­vorite spot they go to every year. They bring their cool­ers and their lawn chairs and they are all set. What we usu­ally rec­om­mend is finding a place near the Vendor Mar­ket, which is in the Home De­pot Park­ing Lot at 4159 FM 1960 West at Glade­brook. This is the mid-point of the pa­rade. The Vendor Mar­ket fea­tures Car­ni­val Games, Bal­loons, Face Paint­ing, Jew­elry, Cloth­ing, Novelty and Ir­ish Themed T-Shirts. There's also just about any kind of food you can think of in­clud­ing Fun­nel Cakes, Sausage on a Stick, Jerk Chicken, Pulled Pork, BBQ Brisket, Kabobs, Gy­ros, and Cup­cakes. But one of the best rea­sons to set up near the Vendor Mar­ket is that it's where the porta-pot­ties are.
