CHICAGO (TUSEN) – It’s a special Thanksgiving morning in the loop. After two years, a Chicago tradition returns.
The Chicago Thanksgiving Parade returns Thursday and will feature the traditional large balloons flying at high altitude, along with dance numbers, marching bands, floats and even special guests. The parade will run from Ida B. Wells Drive to Randolph Street.
This year’s parade comes after the 2020 parade was canceled due to the pandemic. this was due to an order from the city of Chicago not to organize the parade or any other special event. It was the first cancellation in the history of the parade.
Participation in the parade is free, but it is advisable to arrive early if you want to take a good seat to witness the action. VIP seating in the area is still available but it will cost you $ 50 per seat. The parade is currently underway.
