Nacogdoches Parade TONIGHT

NACOGDOCHES - The 12th annual Nine Flags Festival will be in full swing Saturday, Dec. 6, in downtown Nacogdoches with an entire day of holiday fun ending with the largest lighted Christmas parade in East Texas.

As the day's events unfold, excitement will be building for largest lighted Christmas parade in East Texas beginning at 6:30 p.m. and winding its way through downtown, which itself will be aglow with more than 3 million festive holiday lights. The evening will culminate in an exciting, 20-minute fireworks display to light up the sky over downtown.

"We welcome everyone to downtown Nacogdoches Dec. 6 to help us ring in the holidays," Endicott said. "If you are not yet in the holiday spirit before you come to the Nine Flags Festival, you surely will be when you leave!"
