Vintage Detroit | America's Thanksgiving Parade

| Detroit, 1962 |

 Ever since I was a little girl, starting off Thanksgiving morning would not be complete without plopping myself in front of the tv to watch the Detroit Thanksgiving Parade, also known as America's Thanksgiving Parade.


| Detroit, undated |

Detroit's Thanksgiving parade was started in 1924 by the J. L. Hudson company.  Charles Wendel, Hudon's display director, got the idea after seeing the success of Toronto's Eaton's Santa Claus Parade.


| Detroit, 1973 |
Wendel also is responsible for one of the most iconic elements of the Detroit parade, large paper mache heads; which were inspired by those he had seen on a trip to Europe.


| Detroit, 1935 |
America's Thanksgiving Parade is the second oldest in the States, tied with the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.


| Detroit, 1940s |

While the parade is now shown nationally to over 100 million viewers, it was first televised in 1948 to local viewers.


Which Thanksgiving Day parade do you watch?

My father loved to go into the city for the Thanksgiving parade so we'd all go along and battle the cold:) I don't remember too much about the parades just the crowds and cold:) When I am in Michigan and able to shop at vintage stores or even online and I see an old Hudson label, I just love it. Such a sense of nostalgia for what Detroit once was.
