Music makers, floats and a host of activities made for another successful Thanksgiving parade in Plymouth Nov. 19.
PLYMOUTH − One of the best parts of Plymouth’s annual America’s Hometown Thanksgiving Parade is not always knowing who or what might be a part of it., and this year’s 26th annual event Saturday, Nov. 19, continued that tradition with appearances from Abe Lincoln, a walking cranberry in white overalls and Bruins legend Johnny Bucyk.
The Marine Corps did a flyover demonstration before the two-hour parade stepped off from near Plymouth Rock and continued along Water Street to Main and Court Streets before ending at the corner of Nelson Street.
Joining the cast of characters and honored participants, reenactors and marching bands lined the route and shared the space with an array of meticulously designed floats.
In addition to celebrating Pilgrim and Wampanoag history, several new floats highlighted other aspects of America’s history and achievements.
