Christmas Parade

The Christmas Kickoff and Christmas Parade is held on the First Monday of December each year. This year it will be held December 2, 2019.

The streets of downtown Bullard will be filled with the Christmas spirit as the City of Bullard and the Bullard Area Chamber of Commerce will host the annual Bullard Christmas Parade and The City of Bullard is hosting the third annual Bullard Christmas Kickoff!  The parade will feature several school organizations and clubs from Bullard Independent School District and The Brook Hill School, as well as citywide organizations and entities, such as the Bullard Fire and Police Departments. Attendees will also have the chance to catch a rare glimpse of a "special guest," who is extremely busy around the holiday season, but always finds a way to pay a visit to Bullard for the Christmas event. According to reports, the "special guest" will be making a list and checking it twice, in an effort to find out who's naughty and nice.  Hot cocoa and sugar cookies will be provided at no charge.  Photos with Santa will also be available at no charge, located at Bullard Masonic Lodge 785, 113 Phillips Street (next door to Legends Restaurant.

During the event, businesses, community organizations, and school organizations are invited to compete in the Christmas Tree Decorating Contest. Trees for the Bullard Christmas Tree Decorating Contest must be artificial and at least six-feet tall. They must have lights and weather friendly decorations, meaning no paper, glass or porcelain decorations. Trees will need to be tied down with wire or zip ties, while ornaments will need to be twist tied to branches on trees. Prizes will be given for trees winning the designations of Most Original, Most Traditional, Most Kid Friendly, and Most Beautiful.
