Thanksgiving is next week, and many of us love to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. But if you live in an apartment in Charlotte, NC, you are probably a bigger fan of our area Thanksgiving parade celebration.
The Belk Carolinas' Carrousel Parade marches into Charlotte just in time for Thanksgiving bringing marching bands, spirited floats, beauty queens and more. Cheer on parade favorites like the Wells Fargo stagecoach and Santa's big arrival with Belk's own Belkie Bear. Don't forget to bring canned goods for drop-off stations along the route benefiting Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina. Afterward, take a stroll to the NASCAR Hall of Fame, open on Thanksgiving for special holiday hours.
The 64th annual Belk Carolinas' Carrousel Parade is one of the largest get-togethers of Carolina residents that takes place during the year and has also been recognized by TravelMuse.com as the fourth largest Thanksgiving Parade in the United States. The parade boasts participation from both Carolinas and touches approximately half a million people from the 22 county metro area.
Beginning at 10am on Thanksgiving Day, at City Center Charlotte, the parade steps off from 10th and North Tryon and ends at the Levine Center for the Arts on South Tryon.
Happy Thanksgiving from Auston Woods Apartment Community.
