Join over 400,000 people as they line up along State Street to celebrate the 79th annual McDonald’s Thanksgiving Parade as it travels from Congress Parkway to Randolph. The parade is set to run on November 22nd from 8:00 a.m.- 11:00 a.m., with special appearances by Santa Claus and Ronald McDonald. All of the 2012 Chicago.
Thanksgiving Parade revelries are also televised on Chicago’s own WGN Channel 9, where viewers can enjoy the show from their living rooms or record the show and hope to catch a glimpse of themselves at the event!
The 2012 Chicago Thanksgiving Parade is a free event but spectators should arrive early if they want a prime front-row seat. It’s a good idea to bundle up the kids and fill a thermos with some hot chocolate to fight off that brisk Chicago wind.
