Detroit’s 1st Thanksgiving Day Parade rolls down Woodward
November 27, 2027
Founded by J.L. Hudson’s, the legendary department store, Detroit’s Thanksgiving Day Parade rolled down Woodward Avenue for the first time on this day in 1924. The first iteration featured horses pulling a float decorated with Mother Goose, four papier-mâché heads and seven marching bands. The tradition has grown considerably over the years.
