Parade Info??? There’s an App for That

The FM 1960 Parade Committee is proud to announce its partnership with the Houston Northwest Chamber of Commerce and Mobile Developer Bar Z Civic to put parade information in the palm of your hand.

The 41st Annual FM 1960 Saint Patrick’s Parade will be on Sunday, March 17 from 2 to 5 pm along FM 1960 from Champion Forest Drive and ending at Kuykendahl.
