Detroit held its 48th annual America’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Thousands of people lined up along Woodward Avenue to celebrate.
People came from Detroit, the suburbs, Muskegon, I even talked to somebody from Marquette, MI. All of them came in for the parade. For a lot of them it’s a family tradition. They’re here for the clowns, the floats, and the marching bands.
Lisa Greleski and her son, Adam, has been coming here for the last 3 years.
"Of course we’re expecting to see Santa, that’s the biggest part. But Adam loves Captain Underpants, too. We love the floats, love the music, love the marching bands."
Nine-year old Nadia Grandison came to the pardade to see Santa Clause ride by on a big float. It may be Thanksgiving, but Nadia says she’s already made up her Christmas list for Santa:
“I asked for a doll house and I asked for a Barbie jet so I could play with my Barbies and they could fly around in a jet!”
After the parade, a lot of Detroiters will be doing another tradition: Eating turkey and watching the Detroit Lions play.
