2014 Thanksgiving Day Parade Cancelled

Due to scheduling conflicts that substantially reduced the availability of a number of high school marching bands and parade unit entries, the Christmas in St. Louis Foundation is not able to produce a holiday parade consistent with the quality our community deserves and it has received over the last thirty years.  As such, we regret to announce that this year’s parade previously rescheduled for December 13th is cancelled.  We look forward to coming together next year on Thanksgiving morning for the 30th Annual Ameren Missouri Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Congratulations to Our Contest Winners!

Christmas in St. Louis is home to the Ameren Missouri Thanksgiving Day Parade and the Festival of Lights. For 30 years, our non-profit, all-volunteer organization has been dedicated to promoting activities that inspire people to show their unique holiday spirit while enhancing the texture and heritage of the St. Louis community. We expect over 130 parade units, such as musical floats and displays, giant helium balloon figures, animal units and marching bands from around the St. Louis region.  As always, Santa Claus will be present to wish everyone a Merry Christmas at the end of the parade.The parade will be held on Thanksgiving, November 27, 2014.  As in past years, it will start in downtown St. Louis at 8:45 AM.
