One-Tank Trip for Nov. 19/16
By Jim Fox
They say that “everyone loves a parade” and this one marking the U.S. Thanksgiving next Thursday in Detroit is certainly no exception.
It’s been around for 90 years and recognized as one of the best parades in the country.
The storied spectacle attracts hundreds of thousands of spectators and is also shown on TV in more than 170 U.S. cities.

It offers a “star-studded celebrity line-up for this major milestone year,” said Tony Michaels, president and ceo of the Parade Company.
It moves off at 8:50 a.m. at Kirby and Woodward with “larger-than-life floats, colourful helium-filled balloons, thunderous marching bands and exciting specialty acts.”
