"This is a good family outing where a family can come out and get into the holiday spirit and express their holiday cheer," said Wilfred Brewster, Volunteer Services director.
"The floats, candy and music all come together to make for a great event in our city and it really gets everyone in the mood for celebrating the season."
While the parade has more than 150 entries, Brewster
said another element that makes it unique is seeing all the different cultures come together.
"We have a lot of different cultures in our city, and at the parade, people will see all of them come together to show how each celebrates the holidays," he
The city is asking that parade-goers bring a canned good, which will be picked up along the route by the Men of Unity.
The organization will donate collected items to the Killeen Food Care Center
"Jolly old Saint Nick will be there with plenty of candy and well wishes," Brewster
