Dunkin Thanksgiving Day Parade

Dunkin Thanksgiving Day Parade coming to Hulu for the first time. To say “The 6abc Dunkin’ Thanksgiving Day Parade Celebration” has been our family tradition for 46 years is a testament to how amazing this event is. My personal affinity for this parade goes back to being a Philly native and spending many years outside during rain, snow, high winds, unusually hot weather watching Tom Turkey, Santa Claus, National recording artists, and my own hometown marching band walk the streets of the Ben Franklin Parkway. This year please join me here in Florida and watch along on Hulu as the parade is finally streamed worldwide.

6abc, Philadelphia’s most-watched television station and leading news source, rings in the holiday season with its 11-year title sponsor Dunkin’ for the “The 6abc Dunkin’ Thanksgiving Day Parade Celebration” on Thursday, Nov. 25 (8:30 a.m. EST). The No. 1 hometown parade begins with a half-hour preview show, followed by three hours of celebrity appearances, performances, and sweepstakes contests throughout the parade’s broadcast. The event is hosted by 6abc Action News’ Rick Williams, Cecily Tynan, Adam Joseph, Karen Rogers, and Alicia Vitarelli with special guest host Carson Kressley, Emmy®-award-winning daytime talk show host Tamron Hall and Chief Meteorologist Ginger Zee of “Good Morning America.”

The popular Dunkin’ Fan Cam is back LIVE on the streets of Philadelphia, following hosts Alicia and Adam up the Ben Franklin Parkway throughout the parade as they share in the festivities with parade-goers and engage with viewers via social media hashtag #6abcTDP. Special guest hosts Kressley and Zee will be joined by Quinta Brunson, creator, writer, executive producer, and star of the upcoming ABC workplace comedy “Abbott Elementary,” which debuts with a special premiere on Tuesday, December 7 (9:30 p.m. EST/8:30 p.m. CST).
