Rockin’ Around the South Pole
Known as the “South Pole of Texas,” McAllen goes all out for Christmas, hosting not one, but several events in the Rio Grande Valley.
First being Christmas in the Park. During the day enjoy live music, carnival rides, local foods at el mercado and don’t forget to check out the mobile Dallas Cowboys Hall of Fame Museum!
At night, enjoy the annual McAllen Holiday Parade – Texas’ LARGEST illuminated helium balloon parade! Keep your eyes open for celebrity sightings of Dallas Cowboy players and telenova stars. Be sure to experience the Vuelta Zone – a South Texas tradition which means “turn” in Spanish, signaling the balloons to “vuelta!” as they stop by.
It’s the city’s biggest event of the season and the state’s Best Parade!
