Houston Thanksgiving Parade to Honor Flower Man

by Paula Newton November 27, 2014

Flower_Man_floatHappy Thanksgiving! There’s still time to get downtown to catch the 65th Annual H-E-B Thanksgiving Day Parade, which starts at 9am and goes on until noon (parade route here). Among the over 250 entries, including a six-ton potato on wheels (?) and another skateboard-themed entry, is a tribute to Cleveland “The Flower Man” Turner. Long-time Houston fixture and visionary artist, the Flower Man died last December and his colorful presence is still missed. After days of marches of frustration, take a couple of hours for a celebration parade.
