Looking for something to do on Thanksgiving before eating
all Turkey and all the great food that accompanies it? Look no further than the
Thanksgiving Day parade in Uptown charlotte, NC. This is a great event for the
whole family and one I have not missed in a few years and look forward to the
great tradition for many more years as well.
Called the Belk Carolinas Carrousel Parade. This has been a staple in
Charlotte, NC. for over 65 years. Voted as one of the four largest Thanksgiving
parades in the United States; it attracts families from all over the Carolinas
