The Fountain Hills Thanksgiving Day Parade is the only Thanksgiving Parade you’ll find in Arizona, in fact the only one this side of the Mississippi River.  Before you settle down for some delicious turkey, stuffing and pumpkin pie, bring all your friends and family out to the parade.  Stay until the end, because Santa Claus always makes this his first parade of the Christmas season.  The parade starts at 9:30am at Avenue of the Fountains in Fountain Hills.
