6abc/Dunkin’ Donuts

Thanksgiving Day Parade

The 99th annual 6abc/Dunkin’ Donuts Thanksgiving Day Parade is Philadelphia’s #1 family tradition and the longest running Thanksgiving Day Parade in America. The fun kicks off Thursday, November 22 at 8:30am with a half-hour preview show, followed by three hours of parade action! This year’s parade features 17 marching bands from across the nation, as well as 17 floats, 29 performances, and fan favorites from music, stage and screen. Disney, the parent company of 6abc, will once again bring the magic to our great city, as Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse will be joining the fun! And in traditional Philadelphia fashion, our two “guests of honor” will help us mark the unofficial start of the Christmas holiday season! That’s right… Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus will sleigh ride up the parkway! Take part in the tradition of the 6abc/Dunkin’ Donuts Thanksgiving Day Parade, and make memories in Thanksgiving Day Zone, presented by American Heritage Credit Union; an open-air festival right at Eakins Oval. We hope to see you there!
