This weekend sees one of Austin’s oldest and most beloved parades take place on Saturday. Started in 1987, Chuy's Children Giving to Children Parade gives kids a chance to donate new, unwrapped toys to the Operation Blue Santa, which will be distributed to other children for the holidays—thus making sure as few children as possible go without gifts during that time. Santa's Helpers will line the parade route and help spectators donate their toys. Here are the closures involved, followed by a map, courtesy of the Downtown Austin Alliance.
