The holiday season is officially underway and the 37th Annual Main Street Texarkana Christmas Parade is set for Monday, December 6, at 7 PM.

This year parade fans can expect over 100 lighted participants to wind down the heart of downtown Texarkana. Camels will lead the way followed by a bevy of school marching bands, lighted floats, of course, Santa Claus himself.
