A spectacle of sight and sound, the Novant Health Thanksgiving Day Parade is a Charlotte tradition with six decades of history behind it, growing to its impressive reputation as the fourth largest of its kind in the country and the biggest in the Southeast. In 2019, the event drew 110,000 live spectators and 2 million household viewers via broadcast. People were watching online all over the world from Washington to Mexico to Sweden! In 2020, we produced a virtual parade with local performers and looking back on some of our favorite parade memories.
