The Macy’s Day Parade is lame, and every Michigander knows it. America’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is where it’s at. Where else in the entire world can you find a giant Bob Seger head marching through the street? Nowhere. If you’ve only watched the parade on TV instead of seeing it in person, you’re doing yourself a disservice. Even if you’re not a holiday person, the parade is a great show. It’s been a Detroit tradition since the ’20s, and it’s something that every little kid (and many adults) look forward to. Comedian Keegan-Michael Key and civil rights icon Judge Damon Keith serve as the celebrity guests this year, which is the parade’s 90th anniversary.The parade starts at 8:50 a.m.; Kirby and Woodward, Detroit; theparade.org; The parade is free to attend.
