The three-hour long parade includes award-winning marching bands, performance groups, equestrian units, dance troupes, local and national celebrities, rhythmic drum lines and much more.

2 - New Orleans, Louisiana

If you are looking for a destination that know how to throw an incredible party and fabulous food, then head to New Orleans for their amazing take on Thanksgiving. If you are big foodie (like us), then you will need to try the famous Turducken. This triple-poultry dish is a chicken stuffed into a duck, stuffed into a turkey and it is served all around town. 

Not only does New Orleans have amazing cuisine but it also hosts a parade filled with thousands of twinkling lights, a walking band and even a guest appearance from the big man himself, Santa.
