Put your turkey in the oven and come to downtown Fountain Hills for the best Thanksgiving Parade in Arizona (alright…it’s the only one in Arizona, but who’s counting!)
Thanksgiving is a time of family and friends here in Fountain Hills, and for the past 21 years, we’ve kicked off the holiday festivities with a parade that would make any New Yorker proud (okay, maybe we don’t have the Snoopy Dog on a tether!)
The Parade is full of local groups that come out to support our Town. The High School Marching Band provides some of their award winning music and dance teams bring the streets alive. Local Martial Arts teams give a terrific show of their unique disciplines, along with baton twirlers and gymnasts. Car clubs show off their stuff with everything from Model T’s to Mini Cooper and motorcycle drill teams. Several scout troops, chorus groups and community bands will also help you get into the festive spirit and the very last entry in the Parade is the Jolly Old Elf himself….Santa Clause! He ushers in the Christmas season and sends us home to be with our friends and families to make cherished memories.
The Parade kicks off at 9am at El Lago and Saguaro. It marches down Saguaro to Palisades and then up to La Montana where it finishes at Parkview Avenue. Bring chairs and dress warm!
