America's only historically accurate chronological parade

SPECIAL GUESTS THIS YEAR-

JERRY REMY and WCVB CHANNEL 5 MORNING TEAM

                                                       


Saturday - November 17, 2018

RAIN OR SHINE!

Opening Ceremonies - DCR Pilgrim Memorial Park, 10:30AM
Parade Steps Off - Benny’s Plaza Court Street, 11:00AM

The Saturday morning Celebration festivities begin at 10:30am on the Plymouth Massachusetts historic waterfront with an opening ceremony featuring a variety of top-quality entertainment.

This is one of America’s only historically accurate chronological parades, visually bringing to life America’s rich heritage representing each century from the 17th through the 21st. In showing the preservation of America’s history through the years, beginning with the Pilgrim era, we promote an appreciation among our citizens for our rich heritage.

The parade is ranked the #1 Thanksgiving parade in the nation by AOL. It features beautifully decorated floats, nationally recognized Drum and Bugle Corps, re-enactment units from every period of American history and military marching units.

Patriotism and hope is revived in the hearts of observant adults and children as the drum and fife, pipe, drum and bugle corps, and military bands play music honoring the courageous defenders of our country: the men and women who serve in the Army, the Navy, the Marines, the Air Force and the Coast Guard.

Educational and economic factors aside, the parade offers plenty of fun and entertainment to attract visitors from all corners of the United States and even beyond. Music, historical reenactments, vintage American cars and beautiful handmade floats are all part of the visual feast and fun. Viewers are treated to a visual trip back to the colonial days. The opening ceremony and parade will be interspersed for the deaf and hard of hearing.

We are giving historic tours on the waterfront with costumed guides on Friday, November 16th from 1:30 to 3:30.
