Celebrating over 72 years of holiday memories

Experience the magic for yourself!

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 2018, the event drew 110,000 live spectators and 1.5 million household viewers via broadcast. People were watching online all over the world from Washington to Mexico to Sweden!

Entertainment brought a "Mile of Smiles" to parade-goers in the form of 13 marching bands, eight larger-than-life balloons, 17 floats, the Seed and Feed Marching Abominable (Atlanta, Georgia) and performances by Harvey Cummings and Renee Rapp.

Don't miss this year's event on November 28.
