Folks across the state of Alabama look forward to Thanksgiving traditions with their family and friends.

For some, it’s gathering at Grandmother’s house for a big family Thanksgiving meal, for others, it could be the yearly vacation to an island, or even attending or watching Thanksgiving Day parades.

The Annual Alabama State University’s Turkey Day Classic parade is another great holiday celebration. This exciting and high-energy parade takes place in Downtown Montgomery on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 24 at 9 a.m. This is a “community-wide event is steeped in the University’s and Montgomery’s tradition,” said ASU.

What to Expect

Alabama State University said that “thousands of families, students, and alumni from around the state and country line the streets each year to witness the pageantry, music, sights, and sounds of what had become one of the city’s most anticipated holiday festivities.”

This is all 100% true.

I’ve not only attended this top-notch parade but I have participated as well. It really is a super nice parade. The energy of those attending the parade is unmatched.
