PEKIN, Ill., – America's Thanksgiving Day parade has been a beloved tradition for nearly 90 years. Each holiday season, crowds gather in Detroit to watch the floats and performers make their way down Woodward Avenue. This year, Ford continues its support of the Thanksgiving Day Parade with more than 40 Ford vehicles, including f-Series trucks, Mustangs, and explorers leading the way down Woodward, along with the Ford Mobility One float.
Ford is also a huge contributor to local community and educational programs in Detroit and in America. This year they are contributing $20 million to Detroit organizations. They also signed a new three-year sponsorship commitment to The Parade Company. In addition, Ford is teaming up with Holiday Meals on Wheels, which helps homebound seniors receive Thanksgiving dinner.
The Ford Mobility One float is more than 90 feet long and represents the history of Ford Motor Company. It includes a Model-T, Henry Ford, as well as modern students and technology. Tune in as Ford continues to support the Thanksgiving Day parade! The festivities will take place in Detroit on November 24 starting at 8:45 am.
