This November, Plymouth is hosting its eagerly awaited “America’s Hometown Thanksgiving Celebration” parade. You can watch it live on Boston’s own WCVB Channel 5 or stream it through the Very Local app. The live coverage will start at 10 AM on Saturday, November 18, and last until noon. If you miss the live event, don’t worry! You can still watch it on-demand or catch the encore presentation on Thanksgiving morning.
For the first time ever, people across the country can catch the parade’s special moments. A special highlights show will be broadcast in 24 markets through Hearst Television, the parent company of WCVB.
The event will be brought to life by the familiar faces of WCVB EyeOpener anchors Antoinette Antonio and Doug Meehan. They will be joined by Olly deMacedo, the parade’s long-time Executive Director, and Dr. Paul Jehle, a historian from the Plymouth Rock Foundation. WCVB’s own Maria Stephanos and Ed Harding, along with other team members, will add their own unique touch to the parade, offering fun commentary from the channel’s float. And keep an eye out for Justin Spencer and Ryan Vezina from “Recycled Percussion,” who will be delivering a thrilling performance.
This year, the parade will be a tribute to U.S. veterans, acknowledging their sacrifices with the theme “The Price of Freedom.” The parade will start at the iconic Plymouth Rock and make its way through the historic streets. Expect to see more than twenty beautiful floats showcasing key moments from America’s history. Local musicians, school bands, and military bands will also join in to pay homage to our nation’s veterans.
