For Educators… and kids too


The Parade Company, in partnership with Eastern Michigan University, has developed an education program for the Studio Tours Program.  Developed by EMU professors, Curriculum guides for grades PreK-5 are now available for download for educators.


These curriculum units are meant to give lesson plan ideas and educational talking points for student before, during and after your tour of the Parade Studio.  For more information on Studio Tours and to make reservations, visit the Studio Tours page on this site, or call (313) 432-7833.

Just For Kids

Each year, through the generosity of our fantastic sponsors, we are able to produce a Parade Activity book.  While distributed along the parade route on Thanksgiving Day, we know not everyone can make it to Woodward Avenue to view that parade.  So we wanted to bring the activity books to you.

Click on the book below and you can print out your very own parade activity book to color and enjoy!
