PHILADELPHIA - Located in the City of Brotherly Love, the Philadelphia Thanksgiving Parade is a more than a century-old tradition. The annual event is filled with performers from across the region. In 2022, the parade will include a lot of special guests.
The Philadelphia Thanksgiving Parade will be held on November 24, 2022. It will begin at 8:30 am. Visitors will find giant floats, characters, and musical performances. It's also a good idea to bring blankets and other activities for kids.

The best places to watch it are along Benjamin Franklin Parkway, the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and the Academy of Natural Sciences. If you want to see the parade from a rooftop, the Assembly Rooftop Lounge on the ninth floor of the Logan Hotel is a good choice.
