America’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

The Macy’s Day Parade is lame, and every Michigander knows it. America’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is where it’s at. Where else in the entire world can you find a giant Bob Seger head marching through the street? Nowhere. If you’ve only watched the parade on TV instead of seeing it in person, you’re doing yourself a disservice. Even if you’re not a holiday person, the parade is a great show. It’s been a Detroit tradition since the ’20s, and it’s something that every little kid (and many adults) look forward to. Comedian Keegan-Michael Key and civil rights icon Judge Damon Keith serve as the celebrity guests this year, which is the parade’s 90th anniversary.The parade starts at 8:50 a.m.; Kirby and Woodward, Detroit;; The parade is free to attend.
