Thanksgiving Day Parade

An ongoing Philadelphia tradition, the 6abc Dunkin’ Thanksgiving Day Parade is the first and oldest Thanksgiving parade in the country.

The city streets make way for decked-out floats, towering balloons, and performances by musicians, dancers, marching bands and more.

Plus, Santa himself makes an appearance (in grand fashion), officially ushering Philly into the holiday season.

The parade begins on Thanksgiving Day, November 23, 2023 at 8:30am and runs until 12pm, with a 30-minute pre-show followed by three hours for the parade and performances.
