America's Hometown Thanksgiving Parade

Last Saturday, we drove up to Plymouth to attend the America’s Hometown Thanksgiving Parade...which is one of the biggest and best in the united states. Plymouth MA is the birthplace of Thanksgiving...so the parade is not only a well-loved holiday celebration, it is of much historical significance as well.

It was a good thing that we arrived early for the event as the traffic was really bad due to the number of people attending the parade as well as the result of road closures. We parked several streets away from the main event area and found ourselves a place on top of a little hill where we had a birds eye view of the parade.

Together with us were hundreds of thousands of people from all over the country and we had all gathered along the streets to watch history unfold before our eyes. The parade of pilgrims, soldiers, patriots, pioneers and floats (appeared in chronological order from 1600's to 2000's)) told a captivating visual story.

I took hundreds of photos....here are just some of them.
