The Chicago-Chicago Thanksgiving Parade has passed downtown again after being closed by the COVID-19 pandemic last year.
The parade began Thursday at 8am at Ida B Wells Drive.
After a year’s vacation, there was no shortage of excitement. Loudly and proudly, the 87th annual parade traveled north on State Street, entertaining thousands of people along the route.
For many, it was a return to the holiday tradition. For others, it was the beginning of something new, especially for those new to the city.
The parade plan started a few months ago. The organizers of the parade said they had to overcome a lot of emotions, along with the hard work to make it happen.
Hundreds of performers, marching bands, floats, and beloved mascots appeared in the parade.
