The Falls Shopping Center, 8888 SW 136 St., has announced it will ring in this holiday season on Saturday, Nov. 23, with the 17th annual “Miracle on 136th Street” Holiday Parade that promises to be bigger and better than ever.
Local dignitaries and celebrities will ride in vintage and convertible cars during the parade. Again this year, the Holiday Parade will benefit 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 riding on his very own float.
Spectators are encouraged to arrive early and line both sides of the route before the parade steps off at 4 p.m. The parade route, 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.
After the parade, from 5:30 to 10 p.m., the celebration continues with holiday activities in the mall.
