FOX 15 Christmas Lights Parade Sponsored By:

Season's Greetings!

This year's Christmas Lights Parade is special. For 30 years the Parade, in partnership with the Abilene Downtown Association's City Sidewalks, has kicked off the holiday season. 

 

I am happy to have been a part of this magnificent event for the last 20 years. I know some of you have been with the Parade since the beginning - how amazing is that! 

 

KXVA FOX 15 is proud to call Abilene and the Big Country home. We invite you to come Home for the Holidays and help celebrate the season with everyone. And we are excited to bring the 30th Anniversary Christmas Lights Parade to the community. Here's to 30 More Years!
