Did you know that the Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day Parade is one of the oldest Thanksgiving Day Parades in the country? It’s also one of the best! The parade begins on Thanksgiving Day (Thursday November 27 this year) and starts at 20th and Market Street. At the parade, you will see a range of marching bands as well as fun colorful floats. Be sure to also bring your canned goods as each year the 6ABC Dunkin Donuts Holiday Food Drive is held in conjunction with the parade and proceeds go to a local charity.
After the Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day Parade you and your family should head to Thanksgiving dinner. Not to worry, Philadelphia’s thriving food scene offers a plethora of dining options. The Capital Grille (1338 Chestnut Street) will host a Thanksgiving dinner made of the classics for $36 per person ($15 per child); you can also enjoy their a la care menu.. For a southern-inspired Thanksgiving head to Headhouse Square, the Twisted Tail (509 S. 2nd St.) is serving up a Family Style Southern Thanksgiving dinner for $42 per person which includes all of the traditional favorites and homemade pie — one more thing you have to be grateful for this holiday season. When you hear Bistro St. Tropez you may not automatically think Thanksgiving, but Bistro St. Tropez boasts fantastic views of the city along with their annual Thanksgiving buffer for $58 per person ( $20 for children under 12). For water views and more delicious Thanksgiving fare head to the Chart House (555 S. Columbus Blvd.), perched on the Delaware River, who is serving a turkey dinner complete with classic sides for Thanksgiving.
