Participation is free. You can sign up to participate or volunteer online.

The new parade was announced last week after the annual BCS Christmas Parade traditionally traveled from Texas A&M to Texas Avenue and into Bryan was canceled by organizers. Organizers cited new medians on Texas Avenue as the reason it was canceled after 93 years of becoming a holiday tradition in Aggieland.

The City of Bryan is also hosting a Lighted Christmas Parade on Dec. 7 in Downtown Bryan.
