Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson continues to make himself at home in the city of Houston, Texas. Recently, Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner revealed that Jackson would serve as the grand marshal at the 73rd Annual H-E-B Thanksgiving Day Parade. Alongside Jackson, Bernard “Bun B” Freeman will perform at the annual parade in his hometown.
“As we celebrate our blessings this year, let us reflect on Houston as a vibrant and welcoming global city that values diversity and inclusion. This year’s Thanksgiving Day parade will highlight some of the most incredible talent, floats, and marching bands in the history of the parade,” turner told Fox 26 in Houston.
Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson will not only lead the city’s holiday parade. Recently, he also teamed up with the Houston Rockets to lead a turkey drive at the Toyota Center. Together, Jackson’s G-Unity Foundation and the Rockets distributed 1,000 meals and game vouchers to families in the greater Houston area.
“We started at six setting up, and there were people that got here before us, so the line was already long, but we do this every year throughout the year and the line always starts early and ends long,” Houston Rockets Community Relations Vice President Sara Joseph said.
“There’s so many families in Houston that are just not able to provide food for their families this holiday season, so we’re happy to be able to do this.”
The 73rd Annual H-E-B Thanksgiving Day Parade is scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. on November in Houston, Texas.
