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.

Celebrate the start of the holiday season with Philadelphia’s favorite Thanksgiving Day tradition.  

For more than 100 years the parade has marked the beginning of the most wonderful time of the year.  Floats, bands, balloons, and Santa himself will be back along the Ben Franklin Parkway this year, making the march to the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
