DALLAS — Spiderman, marching bands and a popular Disney star will all be in downtown Dallas Saturday morning for the 22nd annual Capital One Bank Adolphus Children's Parade.

The parade begins at 10 a.m., but thousands are expected to begin lining the route early Saturday morning.

Selena Gomez, star of Disney's "Wizards of Waverly Place," will make a guest appearance. As always, Santa Claus will be on hand to herald the Christmas season.

The parade is free and open to the public. Onlookers are advised to bundle up; while the forecast is calling for sunny skies, overnight lows will be in the 20s before warming to the low 50s in the afternoon.

The parade will be broadcast live and in high-definition Channel 8 at 10 a.m. Saturday.  A network of more than 350 television stations in 159 U.S. cities will replay the parade through the month of December.
