If you would have asked myself and others a year ago if I had any interest in seeing a parade, I would tell you no.
I lived up north where the only Parade was the Macy parade for Thanksgiving.
I didn’t live near the section as well as the thought of resting around in the freezing was dumb to me, then well our husband got relocated for labor to Chicago IL, but he had family there as well as was gleeful to go! The change from NY to IL wasn’t all that unusual weather wise. I didn’t realize how much better the actual section was. There is a ton to do in Chicago. There are theaters, parks, professional athletic hobbying events as well as festivals going on all the time. The food is fantastic as well as the people are honestly nice, however one thing our husband insists upon doing every year is seeing the Chicago Thanksgiving Day Parade. I kind of figured it would suck, but so the first year I got super high since recreational weed is legal in our area. I vaped a bunch of cannabis oil as well as bundled up to watch floats as well as people stand around. The parade was awesome. The floats were quite elaborate as well as the performers were amazing. They have tumbling teams, dance teams as well as musicians going up as well as down the streets, but you can snag food as well as gifts along the street if you want to as well. It honestly is a fun thing to do on Thanksgiving day, however my husband as well as I now do it every year as well as then go to his family’s cabin for dinner.
