America's Thanksgiving Parade America's Thanksgiving Parade, is an annual American parade held on Thanksgiving Day in downtown Detroit, Michigan, the tradition started in the city in 1924 by the J.L. Hudson Company department store.
The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City is four years younger than the 6abc Dunkin' Donuts Thanksgiving Day Parade in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
History The idea came from Hudson's display director Charles Wendel after the success of the Canadian Eaton's Santa Claus Parade in Toronto, Ontario.
In addition to the usual floats and bands, Wendel obtained large papier-mâché heads similar to those he saw during a recent trip to Europe.
Parade route Since 2006, the parade has taken place on Woodward Avenue, starting near Woodward and Mack Avenues, and ending at Congress Street
Parade details The parade features a variety of floats, marching bands, and balloons with the climax being the arrival of Santa Claus who appears at the end to herald the arrival of the Christmas season. The parade is made possible through the efforts of over 4,500 volunteers.
