Outdoor Family Fun at the Montgomery County Thanksgiving Parade 

Saturday before Thanksgiving, 10am-12noon


Larger than life inflatable turkeys and penguins, glittering floats, marching bands, dancing groups, and Santa and his elves!  The Montgomery County Thanksgiving Parade is the only Thanksgiving Parade in the metro DC area.

Held in downtown Silver Spring, the exciting parade traditionally heralds the start of the holiday season.  The parade steps off from Ellsworth Drive and Fenton Street and proceeds south on Georgia Avenue, ending at Silver Spring Avenue. 


The deadline to march as a unit has passed.  Applications to march in the 2024 parade will open in August 2024.
