We are Having a Parade for Thanksgiving Day @ Philadelphia Museum of Art!

Event Details

A true Philadelphia tradition, the 6abc Dunkin’ Thanksgiving Day Parade is the oldest Thanksgiving parade in the country.

The city streets make way for massive floats, plus local performers from choirs, dance groups, marching bands and more.

And Santa himself arrives in grand fashion, officially ushering Philadelphia into the holiday season.

The parade begins on Thanksgiving Day, November 24, 2022, at 8:30 a.m., with a 30-minute preview show followed by about three hours of parade and performance time.
The annual Thanksgiving Day Parade promises a visual and celebratory feast — and is the perfect holiday treat to partake in with family or friends in Philadelphia.

The eye-catching highlights of the parade are the festive floats and massive balloons, which come in all shapes and sizes and often feature children’s favorite characters.

Also making an appearance, as always: Santa Claus.
The annual event also features appearances from special guests and performers from around the region and beyond.
