By Tim Janson HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on May 27, 2005
Format: Paperback
Perhaps more than any other holiday Thanksgiving is a time to embrace traditions. Many of use keep the same routines for years, even decades on this day. My own Thanksgiving tradition has changed very slightly in my life. A couple of places, a few names, but Thanksgiving still has the same feel that it did to me thirty years ago when I was a kid. My Thanksgiving, along with millions of other Michiganders, begins with the Detroit Thanksgiving Day Parade. The name has changed a bit over the 80 years the parade has taken place, but whether you watch on TV or are one of the million spectators who goes to see it live, the parade is still one of our great traditions.

Started in 1924 by the J.L. Hudson's Dept. store, the Detroit Thanksgiving parade has grown to become the third largest parade in the nation behind the Rose parade in Pasadena, and the Macy's parade in New York. In this great book from Arcadia press, we get a look back at the rich history of the parade from its earliest days right up until the 21st century. Accompanied with over 200 archival photographs we get a glimpse at what the parade was like throughout the decades and how parade organizers have changed to reflect the times.

Marching bands have always been a key player in the parade and bands from all over the nation are honored when they are asked to participate. The photographs do a great job of highlighting not only local high schools, but bands from high schools as far away as Oregon and Texas. A staple for many years in the parade was the "Blue Pigs" a rock/jazz band made up of Detroit police officers.

Floats were a part of the very first parade in 1924 which featured a horse drawn Mother Goose float. Over the years floats and themes have changed to reflect the pop culture of the era.
