2019 Thanksgiving Day Parade - Once Upon a Time
For the last 36 years, Fountain Hills has been the site of an annual Thanksgiving Day Parade. Once again, the Chamber of Commerce will be hosting the Thanksgiving Day Parade on November 28 from 9 am - 11 am.
The Thanksgiving Day Parade has become a local hometown favorite that draws spectators from across the state who want to ring in Turkey Day with a classic parade. The event starts right at 9:00 am and lasts approximately one hour. Tons of local business participate, as well as Veteran groups, classic car clubs, service organizations, and many more. With a few dozen floats, marching bands, animal groups, dance routines, motorcycle shows and more, this is the place to be Thanksgiving morning!
Don't forget - Santa Claus himself arrives in Fountain Hills for the first time this holiday season at the Thanksgiving Day Parade! He is the event's finale, so make sure to stick around at the end to give Santa a wave!

The Thanksgiving Day Parade is not only a wonderful way to kick off the 2019 Holiday Season, but it is the perfect way to market your business or organization!
