PHILADELPHIA (AP) – The country’s oldest Thanksgiving Day parade is returning to the streets of Philadelphia after taking a year off for COVID-19 restrictions.
City officials made the announcement this week. Philadelphians who mask and social distance will be welcomed along the city’s parade route to watch balloons, performers and floats- many celebrating groups that had to forego their parades during the height of the pandemic as well.
Spectators can expect to see performances by Amy Grant, Kool & the Gang, Tag Team and others. The parade celebrated its centennial in 2019.
