The holiday season will officially kick off in Stamford Downtown on November 19 with the annual Stamford Downtown Parade Spectacular, one of the largest of its kind in the country!

Planned highlights of the parade include 15 giant balloons, KIDZ BOP and Santa Floats.  Plus marching bands, fabulous floats and dynamic dance groups!

On the eve of the parade, Saturday, November 18, the Point72 Giant Balloon Inflation Party will be held from 3-6 p.m. at the intersection of Hoyt Street and Summer Street. This pre-parade event will allow spectators a behind-the-scenes look at the balloons as they come to life. Music, parade talent, cartoon characters and Santa will greet and delight spectators.
