Thanksgiving day paradesWith Thanksgiving just around the corner, millions of people have started making plans for large family gatherings to enjoy turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie. However, another long-standing tradition throughout the country is the Thanksgiving Day parade. Held in multiple cities, these parades are a celebration unlike any other.


Enjoyed by adults and children alike, Thanksgiving Day parades are a wonderful celebratory event. Of course, if you are planning to enjoy a parade this year, it is important to spend time finding the best routes for viewing purposes.


Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade—New York City


The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is the biggest and most famous of all parades. First started in 1926, this year the parade celebrates 89 years of tradition. It travels along the Manhattan streets, where you will enjoy seeing new balloons like Red from Angry Birds, gorgeous floats, marching bands, clowns, novelty balloons, performance groups, and incredible talent like Jordan Sparks, Trey Songz, and Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo, as well as many others.


6ABC Dunkin’ Donuts Thanksgiving Day Parade—Philadelphia, Pennsylvania


This Thanksgiving Day parade is the longest standing in the country, dating back to 1920. The parade features gigantic balloons, marching bands, dance groups, and musical entertainment for everyone. The parade takes a 1.4-mile route through downtown, finishing at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. As part of the crowd, you will see a range of characters from Disney and Sesame Street, as well as Santa Claus and his faithful elves.


McDonald’s Thanksgiving Day Parade—Chicago, Illinois


This is yet another incredible Thanksgiving Day parade scheduled for 2015. Held in Chicago, the parade starts on State Street, making its way to Congress Parkway and Randolph Street. This year’s parade will be even more spectacular than ever, with rhythmic drum lines, vibrant dance troupes, magnificent floats, and of course, character balloons. In addition to Santa Claus, Ronald McDonald himself will participate in the parade.


America’s Thanksgiving Day Parade—Detroit, Michigan


When in Detroit over the Thanksgiving Day holiday, make sure you catch this parade. As the third-oldest parade in the country, following Macy’s, this parade draws thousands of people, who brave the chilly air to see talented marching bands, beautiful floats, festive clowns, and spirited dance groups as they make their way down Woodward Avenue.
