‘Miracle on 136th Street’ Parade welcomes start of holiday season

Some 20,000 spectators are expected to attend the annual Holiday Parade at The Falls.

The Falls Shopping Center, 8888 SW 136 St., will ring in this holiday season on Saturday, Nov. 17, with the 16th annual “Miracle on 136th Street” Holiday Parade that promises to be bigger and better than ever.

Local celebrities and their families will ride in one of the many vintage convertible cars during the parade, led by Parade Grand Marshal Coco Jones, star of Disney Channel’s Let it Shine movie. This year, the Holiday Parade benefits the South Dade YMCA Family Center.

“The Miracle on 136th Street” Holiday Parade is attended annually by more than 20,000 residents. The parade features marching bands, stilt walkers, clowns, vintage cars, community groups and internationally recognized costumed characters, along with the season’s first official appearance of Santa on his very own float.

Spectators are encouraged to arrive early and line both sides of the parade route before the 4 p.m. start. The parade route, which is located on the Boulevard in between the center and the parking lot, will start at the east end of The Falls, in front of Bloomingdale’s and traverse the entire length of the center, west to Macy’s. Activities take place from 4 to 10 p.m.
