The Carolina's Thanksgiving Day Parade

In its 62nd year, The Carolina's Thanksgiving Day Parade - which, goes down today at 10 a.m. - has become a tradition for many folks in Charlotte and the surrounding area. With finely decorated floats and a variety of participants and marching bands in line to strut through the streets of Uptown Charlotte, it's something to experience. It's kinda like the Charlotte version of New York's Macy's Day Parade. Since The Carolina's Thanksgiving Day Parade's earlier, morning start - which replaced its longtime afternoon festivity hours last year -  it's not like you can use being full from gorging on Thanksgiving food as an excuse to not attend. Chill out at the parade (And I do mean chill. It's getting cold, so dress warm people!), which might even kick you into some holiday cheer (or fear). And, like it or not, Santa Claus will be there to remind you that Christmas is just around the corner. 10 a.m. Parade begins at Tryon Street at 9th Street, turns left onto 3rd Street and ends at 3rd Street and Davidson Street.
