PLYMOUTH, Mass. - Nov. 6, 2018 - PRLog -- The Three Day National Event ranked the No. 1 Historical Thanksgiving Parade,as rated by America Online, is next weekend in Plymouth, MA.

The only historically accurate chronological parade will also give tribute to the military, veterans, many historical events and anniversaries.

"Our parade takes on so much historic importance," said Olly deMacedo. "It's important to celebrate and commemorate our history in our annual parade."

We kick off with free historic tours of the waterfront on Friday afternoon. We are also hosting an Appreciation Celebration at Memorial Hall at 7pm, hosted by our own Channel 5 Eye-Opener Team from Boston.

On Saturday morning the parade opening ceremonies begin at 10:30 on the waterfront and then the much anticipated America's Hometown Thanksgiving Celebration Parade,a chronological visual historic storybook steps off to delight everyone.

All of our floats are unique and personally designed, hand crafted by volunteers, and showcase a standard of excellence in craftsmanship.  The finished product floats by the thousands who come to view this visual story book providing an educational experience and historic timeline of our history.

We begin by honoring Wampanoag natives and the first Pilgrim settlers, including a scale model of the Mayflower. Other floats include America's Hometown Express Train, Cornucopia Float, Victorian Carolers and  Saint Nicholas,  which will provide a historic and seasonal ambiance to the parade.

The America's Hometown Express continues to chug along, collecting tons of food  for needy families as a part of America's Hometown Thanksgiving Celebration the weekend before Thanksgiving.  A school bus transformed into a locomotive will collect food from the  crowd of over 150,000 whose food donations are put in the locomotive and coal car along the parade route.

Part of the mission of America's Hometown Express is to inspire Americans in "America's Hometown," as well as around the nation to have a meal on every table during the Thanksgiving Holiday and all year. Don't forget to bring your non-perishable food donation for the America's Hometown Express and help us fill up!

A few new floats for 2018 include "I Have A Dream", a tribute Martin Luther King Jr.'s historic speech in 1963, The Mayflower Descendants and a float honoring the 2018 World Champions Boston Red Sox.

Following the parade, you can wander into the Portal to the Past, striking up conversations with historic heroes from the past, learning their history and re-living the ways of the Natives, Pilgrims, and Patriots.

During and after the parade, at the waterfront we are hosting the
Family Fun Festival  featuring Food Truck Alley, The Children's Pavilion packed with things for the kids, and our first Craft Beer and Wine Garden.

Join us  and kick back with friends, food, tunes and a sweet selection of reds, whites and brews.The waterfront activities conclude with Illumination Thanksgiving, presented by Plymouth 400 at 4:30pm

Saturday Night we host the Annual Alumni Senior Drum and Bugle Corps reunion concert at 6:30 PM at Memorial Hall.   This year will prove to be another amazing show of talented musicians and we are proud to present this all star lineup.  To purchase tickets visit

On Sunday from 11-4,  visit our annual Harvest Market with special vendors from the Plymouth Farmers Market.
