A Three Day National Event in Plymouth MA

Saturday - November 23, 2019

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. It features beautifully decorated floats representing historic events, honoring national anniversaries and celebrating every period of American history.

Patriotism and hope is revived in the hearts of observant adults and children as the floats, drum and bugle corps, and military bands march thru the streets 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. Viewers are treated to a visual trip back to the colonial days.

"Once again we will have certified ASL interpreters at the parade waterfront by the grandstand across from Coles hill. Please look for the interpreter sign to locate them. Enjoy the parade!"

Special Floats for 2019

D-Day's 75th Anniversary

 America’s Hometown Thanksgiving Celebration is known for its honor of veterans.  This year is no different as we will honor the veterans of World War II, known as the “greatest generation,” by creating a float that depicts the 75th anniversary of the June 6, 1944 landing on the beaches of Normandy.  As the Allied troops, a large percentage of them from the U.S., approached the beaches on that Tuesday morning, they knew they would face an entrenched Nazi force awaiting their arrival.  They would be exposed as they climbed the beaches, and they knew thousands would not go home.

Apollo 11 – 50th Anniversary

 America’s Hometown Thanksgiving Celebration will be honoring the 50th anniversary of the landing on the moon with a magnificent float in this year’s chronological parade!  Many of us remember where we were on July 20, 1969 when a fuzzy snow like black and white television beamed to earth one of the most remarkable achievements of America.  Watched by more than 550 million people worldwide and by 53 million families in the U.S., Neil Armstrong said those now famous words “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”
