Kyle Founders' Parade

*The event has already taken place on this date: Sat, 10/09/2021
The City of Kyle invites the community to share in the town’s birthday celebration at the annual Founders’ Day Parade on Saturday, Oct. 9 starting at 10 a.m. Parades through downtown around the middle of October have been a custom ever since Kyle was platted and the first lots were sold in October of 1880 — a Kyle tradition for over 140 years. The parade will start at Gregg-Clarke Park and travel along Center Street, ending at Front Street on the City Square. Immediately after the parade, a celebration for the city’s birthday will be held on Burleson Street and will include birthday cake, music and lots of family fun.

Please help us keep this calendar up to date! If this activity is sold out, canceled, or otherwise needs alteration, email so we can update it immediately.

The best locations to view the Kyle Founders Parade are on either side of Center Street between Gregg-Clarke Park and Mary Kyle Hartson City Square Park. To keep everyone safe, the city is asking attendees to stay on sidewalks or grassy areas along Center Street and to not run into the street when the parade is going by.  

Entries for the parade are limited to 40. The deadline for parade entries is 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 5, or until all spaces are gone. When the spaces are filled, no additional participants can be added to the lineup.

Interested organizations and individuals can fill out the 2021 Kyle Founders' Day Parade Entry Form.
