For the third year in a row, I spent Thanksgiving morning with a front row seat on Woodward Avenue watching America’s Thanksgiving Day Parade with thousands of other people in Detroit, Michigan.
The floats were amazing to see, and as usual, the clowns were fun to watch! My favorite float this year: the Marriott Renaissance float.
Who wouldn’t want to jump on the bed and do somersaults in the air while riding a float down Woodward Avenue?
Next year, I want to be on that float so I can jump on the bed!
While I love going to the parade to see the floats, balloons, and marching bands, I enjoy meeting and chatting with people as we wait for the parade to start.
This year, the family next to me was excited to tell me this was their first time seeing the parade in person.
And they had a special connection to the parade: their daughter was in one of the marching bands that performed.
Thankfully, the weather cooperated, for the most part. While the skies were gray and temperatures were in the mid-forties, the rain showers held off. By the end of the parade the sun came out.
The breeze took its toll on the balloons. Most of the large balloons weren’t able to float upright where we were in midtown.
Hope you enjoy these photos from this morning’s parade!
