Plymouth Thanksgiving Parade
The USS Constitution 1812 Marine Guard makes its annual pilgrimage to Plymouth, Massachusetts for an appearance in the Annual Plymouth America’s Hometown Thanksgiving Parade, America’s only historically accurate chronological parade. The America’s Hometown Thanksgiving Parade is a nationally recognized parade ranking second to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade.
The 2022 parade steps-off at 10 AM to over 150,000 spectators and a national TV audience on ABC, broadcast in the Boston area on Channel 5 WCVB.
During the 2-mile parade, the Unit and the USS Constitution U.S. Navy crew and U.S. Navy Band received a warm and rousing welcome from the parade spectators as we made our way through the route.
