Thanksgiving Day Parade

Thanksgiving Day Parade

Philadelphia hosts the nation’s oldest such pre-Christmas procession in its 6ABC Dunkin’ Donuts Thanksgiving Day Parade. The annual event features marching bands from across the country, giant character balloons, clowns, performers, floats and Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus along a 1.4-mile route that stretches along Market Street and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway to the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
