2023 Chicago Thanksgiving Parade

In Person Viewing

Parade Route

State Street, Downtown Chicago
Parade Marches North from Ida B. Wells to Randolph


  • Our VIP Section for 2023 has sold out.  Thank you to our individual sponsors!  
  • Find a spot near the Harold Washington Library to see our balloons do the “limbo” underneath the L tracks.
  • The nicer the weather, the earlier your fellow spectators show up to the parade.
  • The further south you go on the parade route (closer to Ida B. Wells), typically you will see smaller crowds.
