McAllen Holiday Parade announces Christmas in the Park legendary elements and McAllen Holiday Parade FANtastic contest

McALLEN - Residents can begin their 2019 holiday season fun by celebrating under and with the stars at Christmas in the Park, starting on Friday, December 6. The family-friendly and free winter festival is held at Municipal Park, right next to McAllen Veterans Memorial Stadium at 1921 Bicentennial Boulevard, and features food, fun, vendors, arts & crafts and entertainment for the whole family.
