Santa Claus! We know him! Come Downtown this Saturday at 11:00 a.m. to see your favorite characters and floats followed by the jolly ol’ man himself in Tulsa’s favorite holiday tradition. Be sure to note the new revised route and procession utilizing Cincinnati Avenue from 6th Street to 4th Street before returning to Boston Avenue.

Since 1926, the Tulsa Christmas Parade has entertained thousands of children and adults year after year as it winds through the historic streets of downtown Tulsa. Join in on the fun at this FREE event and see the streets of Downtown Tulsa lined with floats, balloons, and Santa Claus himself! The parade will also be televised on KTUL Channel 8.

The parade starts at 11 a.m., but plan to arrive early so you have enough time to find parking! Parking is available in the Downtown Days of Wonder featured parking garage—the Williams North Garage, located at 11 E. 1st St. This easy to access garage costs just $2 for evening and weekend parking.
