Photos: America’s Hometown Thanksgiving Parade in Plymouth

The Saturday morning Celebration festivities began at 10:30 a.m. on the Plymouth Massachusetts historic waterfront with an opening ceremony featuring a variety of entertainment.

This is one of America’s only historically accurate chronological parades. It visually brings to life America’s rich heritage representing each century from the 17th through the 21st. In showing the preservation of America’s history through the years, beginning with the Pilgrim era, the parade promotes an appreciation among our citizens for our rich heritage.

The parade is ranked the second best Thanksgiving parade in the nation. It features beautifully decorated floats, nationally recognized Drum and Bugle Corps, re-enactment units from every period of American history and military marching units.
