Philadelphia and the Countryside - Press Room

Thanksgiving Day Parade

Thanksgiving Day Parade

Marching bands from all over the U.S. descend upon Philadelphia each year to participate in the oldest Thanksgiving Day parade in the country. They join massive floats, giant balloons, choirs, dance groups and other performers in entertaining crowds along the 1.4-mile route that ends with a grand finale at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
