Liberty Hill Christmas Festival

Everyone loves a PARADE!  Bundle up and tailgate with friends!

Floats and bands, horses and riders, show cars and motorcycles, military and service vehicles, dancers and critters, will all be joined by clowns, comic characters, and Mrs and Santa Claus as they celebrate

Our unique parade follows our 5K racers down Loop 332 from the LH Elementary Stadium to Foundation Park.

Please join us by registering your group using the "Register" link above right.  If you have any questions or need additional accommodations, please email us at or by clicking the email button to the right.

We appreciate spectators who bring unwrapped PRESENTS OR PANTRY ITEMS to pass to Santa's elves as they walk beside Santa for supporting Operation Liberty HillAny size donation welcome! 

Thanks to LH Benny Boyd Dodge for sponsoring these vehicles

Spectators are welcome anywhere between LH Elementary's front entrance, all along Loop 332 to Foundation Park.  Announcers will be set up at Parker's Corner and at Church Street.  Catch candy and goodies from the floats and sponsors, but please help pick up the remains.  Enjoy the moments when the parade stops to allow performers to celebrate with the crowd, giving our runners time to get ahead of the clock!  Listen close to hear which float wins each category!  Best Use of Theme,     Best Panther Pride,     Best Christmas Spirit,     and Best LH Roots/Western culture!
