HOUSTON — Much like the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade where you see Santa at the end, the Children’s Museum of Houston is excited to host its 8th annual Great Gobbler Thanksgiving with Santa event where kids make their own floats, wear them, join the parade and meet Santa.

Get into the holiday spirit with exhilarating activities and engage in our terrific Thanksgiving traditions!

Don’t forget to bring your camera to snap pictures with the man in red before his big delivery.
