The forecast is for flurries Saturday evening in Ybor City.

You'll find the white stuff blowing in the air on Saturday when Tampa's historic Latin Quarter hosts Tampa Bay's newest holiday tradition: the Snow on 7th holiday festival.

The Christmas tree is lit outside Centro Ybor. The marching bands are getting in a final practice. Twinkling lights and Christmas wreaths festoon the streets. Santa is ready to make his appearance.

The last ingredient in this holiday mix is you.

So bring your popcorn and your holiday cheer and join the throngs lining Seventh Avenue for Tampa Bay's holiday parade through the heart of historic Ybor City.

The pre-parade festivities start at 6 p.m. Come down before that and grab dinner at Tampa Bay Brewing Co., the Columbia Restaurant or any of Ybor City's other great restaurants.

Then grab a spot along the parade route and settle in for the fun!

Mayor Bob Buckhorn and his family will kick off the parade at 7 p.m.. Santa will be on hand by the Centro Ybor Christmas tree for pictures afterward.

Don't miss your chance to unlock this growing Tampa Bay tradition!
