Crescent Heights Thanksgiving Day Parade !!!

Who doesn’t love a parade? And could it get better than a parade in your very own neighborhood on Thanksgiving Day!

Started last year by resident Nancy Way and her energetic neighbors, there were baton twirlers, flag bearers, decorated wagons, and even a local beauty queen, all accompanied by John Phillips Sousa march music. This year, Santa and Mrs Claus have even been invited!

The parade is planned to start at 10 AM, Thanksgiving morning, November 27th. Parade participants are welcome to snacks and beverages starting at 9 AM at the parade assembly area, 526 25th Ave North.

Participants: Everyone is welcome to participate in the parade! You can march, you can make a float out of a wagon or golf cart, you can drive a decorated car, you can ride in the hay wagon pickup truck, you can do just about anything. The possibilities are endless. Let your imagination be your guide. Contact Nancy at if you and your family would like to participate. Note that children will need to be accompanied by at least one adult.

Spectators: If you will be home Thanksgiving morning, or even better, have guests or out of town visitors, and want to witness the spectacle then let Nancy know so that the parade route can include your street. A great parade needs great spectators. Send routing requests to

This is your opportunity to get out of the house and work up that Thanksgiving day appetite and have a little neighborhood fun!
