The parade route starts on Summer Street at Hoyt and ends on Atlantic Street. The parade
route is just a few short blocks from the Stamford Metro-North Railroad Station, which provides
frequent service from the north and south.

Stamford's annual holiday balloon parade started nineteen years ago and has become one of
the largest events of its kind in the country, with giant helium balloons floating through Stamford
Downtown. Last year it drew over 100,000 people, not only Stamford residents, but also
spectators from the surrounding region and even nearby states. The giant balloons, of course,
are the showstoppers of our parade.
 
So, don’t let the parade pass you by! The UBS Parade Spectacular starts on Summer and Hoyt
Streets at 12 noon sharp. The Parade proceeds south on Summer, East on Broad, then South
on Atlantic Street. It ends at Federal Street.
Come early for the best viewing seats. Many spectators find it worthwhile to bring their own
folding chairs for more comfortable viewing.
