Spectators are welcomed back to this year's Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day Parade to officially kick off the holiday season amid grand performances, marching bands, special guests, and of course...Santa Claus himself. Be a part of the action downtown or watch from home. 

The parade route is 1.4 miles long and follows from the intersection of 20th and JFK Blvd, turns left on 16th Street and left again onto Ben Franklin Pkwy. Visitors can sit along the parade route free of charge; however there are limited numbers of grandstand seating for sponsors and VIPs only.
