Annual Chuy’s parade on Saturday

Friday, November 17, 2017 by Katy McElroy

The annual Chuy’s Children Giving to Children Parade takes place this Saturday, Nov. 18. The event starts at about 10:45 a.m. and lasts approximately an hour, but downtown street closures will start as early as 6 a.m. and continue until 2 p.m. The parade will start at the state Capitol, and head south down Congress Avenue, ending just before the bridge. Crosstown traffic is allowed on Fifth and Sixth streets until 9 a.m. and on Cesar Chavez Street until 10 a.m. In addition, drivers are advised to be extra cautious, since there will be a lot of children and pedestrian traffic. As in previous years, parade-goers are asked to bring a new, unwrapped toy (for ages infant to 14 years old) to donate to the Austin Police Operation Blue Santa. There will be a designated time during the parade for toy collection. View the Chuy’s parade website here for more information.
