Frisco's Annual Community Parade to be Held Saturday, November 12; Honors Veterans, Showcases School and Community Spirit
Starts at 10 a.m.
Theme: "Heroes: Made to Shine!"
Our Emcee: J.D. Miles, CBS 11
The Frisco Community Parade is held in November to mark Veterans Day and to celebrate community pride. The parade, which was originally a homecoming parade when Frisco was home to one high school, features floats, school marching bands, high school football teams, cheerleaders, scouts, civic organizations, youth sports teams, Frisco-based professional sports teams, and local businesses.
Beginning at 10 a.m., parade participants will leave Toyota Stadium, traveling east on Main Street through historic downtown before finishing at North County Road.
The Frisco Community Parade is a collaboration between the City of Frisco, Frisco Independent School District, Frisco Chamber of Commerce, and the Frisco Veterans Advisory Committee.
The parade will head East on Main Street from the southeast corner of Toyota Stadium through downtown Frisco.
Pedestrian fencing: The city is adding extra safety features to protect our parade participants and audience. Pedestrian fencing will be placed both along the south side of Main Street and along the north side of the Main Street median (See map). This fencing will be installed starting at 5 a.m. on Saturday; it will be secured at 8 a.m. when roads close. Vehicles parallel parked along Main Street will have until 8 a.m. to exit the area; however, any vehicles not moved before 8 a.m. will be blocked until the conclusion of the parade.
