The 56th annual Killeen Christmas Parade will make its merry way through historic Downtown Killeen December 8 at 4:30 p.m. The public is invited to enjoy this free holiday tradition.
The parade will be led by co-grand marshals LTG Paul Funk, Commanding General of III Corps and Fort Hood, and Charlie Watts, 2018 Roy J. Smith Award recipient.
