One of my favorite Austin holiday traditions, The Chuy’s Children Giving to Children Parade, comes to town this Saturday.
I’m a sucker for most any parade, but this one has a unique and wonderful twist. At the Chuy’s parade, children don’t get toys and trinkets, they give them.
Families are encouraged to bring toys to donate to Operation Blue Santa, a local non-profit that provides gifts and a holiday meal for over 3,800 families in the Austin community.
Operation Blue Santa distributes the toys in time for the holidays, bringing Christmas magic to children that otherwise might not receive any gifts.
