On Thanksgiving Day morning, our little family watched the parade in Phildelphia. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN!!! We saw floats, huge balloon floats, a bunch of marching bands and dancers, Disney Princesses, even Anna and Elsa. We were all screaming with delight the entire parade.
The parade was very manageable and not too crowded. The parade interacts with the bystanders as well. Volunteers would march down the parade route with shopping carts to collect canned goods from the crowd. The US Postal Service also marched down, collecting letters to Santa from the children watching the parade. It was so cute. The best part was when the huge balloon floats would come by, the crowd would scream out, “SPIN IT, SPIN IT, SPIN IT”. Then the handlers would all run around in a circle and make the float spin through the air!! It was exhilarating!!
