This year’s America’s Thanksgiving Parade in Detroit featured a float from the Rocket Mortgage Classic. Riding the float was the inaugural winner, Nick Lashley.
America’s Thanksgiving Parade has been a Detroit tradition since 1924. Originally sponsored by the JL Hudson Company Department Store, it now is managed by the Michigan Thanksgiving Parade Foundation. It is the second oldest Thanksgiving Parade in the US, coming in at just four years younger than the Philadelphia Thanksgiving parade.
