America’s Thanksgiving Parade®

America’s Thanksgiving Parade® presented by Art Van is one of the country’s largest and most spectacular Parades in the United States!

Since then, 87 celebrations of sparkles and magic have captured the imaginations of millions of children and their families.

 

Every year, hundreds of thousands of Parade spectators line historic Woodward Avenue Thanksgiving morning to watch the larger than life floats, colorful helium filled balloons, thunderous marching bands and exciting specialty acts!  The Parade is broadcast live locally on WDIV-TV, Local 4 with a syndicated national potential reach of over 65 million households!
