Thanksgiving Parades

By Linda Tancs

The best known Thanksgiving Day parade is arguably the venerated and nationally televised Macy’s production in New York City, stepping off at 77th and Central Park West each year at 9 am.  This parade, originating in 1927, is not the country’s oldest, however.  That honor goes to Philadelphia.  They’ve been parading since 1910, stepping off at 20th and Market at 8:30 am.  In second place is Detroit’s parade, originating in 1924 and stepping off at 9:25 am at Woodward and Mack.  Everyone loves a parade, and now you have three good reasons to join in–from the couch or the bleachers.
