We may not have 76 trombones leading the parade, but the Fairmount Home Tour  Parade is something that should not be missed. You can be a part of the celebration as a participant in the parade or by cheering curb side. Get your friends and neighbors together and celebrate this great event.

If you feel creative, design and decorate a float, bicycle or vehicle for the parade. Past events have been very colorful. Please contact parade coordinator, Pat Bradley, for participation details.


Spectators are also important. See the map below for the parade route. Organize a group to enjoy your favorite libations and watch the parade along the route, or if you are lucky enough to be on the route, from your front porch. You can also join in the festivities at Fairmount Park; the parade’s official beginning and ending location.

For additional information, call Pat Bradley at 817-915-5436 or email patmik@swbell.net.

Our Neighborhood

Located on the near south side of Fort Worth, Texas and covering about one square mile, the Fairmount Southside Historic District contains one of the nation’s richest collections of turn of the century housing. Fairmount is comprised of about 20 subdivisions platted between 1883 and 1907. At the time, Fairmount was a fashionable neighborhood.

About one third of the houses were occupied by business executives who managed their own firms. Professions were represented by many doctors, lawyers, and educators. It was a diverse neighborhood, where craftsmen, inclucing brick and stone masons lived next door to railroad workers. As Fort Worth’s suburbs grew following World War II, the neighborhood fell into disrepair.

Today, through the efforts of of many property owners, residents are working to revitalize the area to restore its past glory.
