How El Paso’s Thanksgiving Day Parade comes to life


Twenty volunteers have been working in a Central El Paso warehouse since May to get floats ready the Sun Bowl Association’s 83rd annual Thanksgiving Day Parade.

The parade is one of the organization’s premiere events to promote the Tony the Tiger Sunbowl football game Dec. 31.

This year the holiday event theme is Bobble Heads on Parade. The Sun Bowl Association welcomes Hyundai of El Paso as the new sponsor. Ron Stallworth, Austin High School graduate and author of BlacKkKlansman, is the 2019 grand marshal.

The parade runs from  10 a.m. to noon on Thursday, November 28 on Montana Street. More information is available at
