Thanksgiving Day Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, starting at 10 A.M.

The Carrousel Parade is alive and well! Novant Health, Charlotte Center City Partners and Carolinas Carrousel, Inc. are proud to announce the 2013 Novant Health Thanksgiving Day Parade. Novant Health has signed on as the parade’s title sponsor for the next three years, guaranteeing this 65-year tradition in Charlotte will continue.

“Just as the Thanksgiving Day parade is a Charlotte tradition, Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center has been improving the health of Charlotte for over 100 years,” said Jesse Cureton, Executive Vice President and Chief Consumer Officer for Novant Health. “Novant Health is committed to the health of this community and part of a healthy community is ensuring community traditions continue for future generations.”

Details for the 2013 Novant Health Thanksgiving Parade are still being finalized. Those who are interested in participating as sponsors, participants or volunteers are invited to an update meeting on Sept. 18 at 2:30pm at the Convention Center. Please RSVP on EventBrite if you plan on attending. Charlotte Center City Partners, the organization producing this year’s parade, will stay in contact with more details.

Parade Pictures

This year's parade is gearing up to be a wonderful celebration of our 66th Anniversary, complete with the floats, marching bands and other exciting elements the Charlotte region has enjoyed for decades.

Going forward, we are confident we will form new partnerships to ensure that the Carrousel Parade and the Carrousel Scholarship Program will continue bigger and better well into the future. As an ardent supporter of the parade once said:

 "I couldn't imagine the Thanksgiving and Christmas season not being ushered in by our Carrousel Parade. There are some things that are truly so much a part of this city that the very character of the city could be changed without them, and this parade is one of those very vital traditions."

We'll see you in uptown Charlotte on Thanksgiving Day this year and for many, many years to come!!


Happy 66th Anniversary to the Carrousel Parade!

The Carrousel Parade has marked the beginning of the holiday season in this area since 1947 and celebrates its 66th anniversary this year. Recognized as the fourth largest Thanksgiving Parade in the U.S., the parade is a treasured regional tradition.
