2022 Parade TV Syndication

A Live, 4th Quarter Programming Opportunity

Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade is a national institution; there is no denying that fact. Families across the country wake up on Thanksgiving morning, turn on their TVs, and instinctively flip channels to find a parade, and once they do, that is where the dial sits for a few hours. But what if the channel flip stopped on your station, and that is where the dial sits for Thanksgiving morning? We can make that happen for you… CFA Events is pleased to offer your station the opportunity to air the live broadcast of the Chicago Thanksgiving Parade.
