My Annual Thanksgiving Day Bike Ride Highlights
I hope every one of you had a great Thanksgiving filled with tons of time spent with loved ones and endless amounts of great food to go around for all!
Obviously, you know our Thanksgiving gets going a couple of days early here at WMGK with our annual Turkey Drop, and this year was another one for the books.
Once that happens, then it’s full steam ahead to the actual turkey day itself!
This year, Thanksgiving was another great day, and it got started with one of my favorite activities — a bike ride!
Pattyann and I did our annual Thanksgiving ride to the Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day Parade, and it was awesome!
It was a quick ten-mile ride down Spruce Street to the Schuylkill Trail and then continued down the actual route for the parade itself down the Parkway.
I look forward to catching the parade each year because there’s always something that catches my eye — whether it be the floats or just the crowds of people having a good time with their friends and families, it is always awesome.
Oh, and did I mention that the Philadelphia Thanksgiving Day Parade is the oldest Thanksgiving parade in America?
Yes, that’s right! This year’s rendition was the 104th edition of the parade, and they get better and better as the years go on.
In fact, if you were in attendance at this year’s parade, you may have seen a familiar face on one of the floats.
I know I did!
It was my old friend and radio legend, John DeBella!
He was actually on a float with the Village People, and it was one of the cooler moments of the parade, for sure!
While there, I took a bunch of photos and videos for you all to enjoy if you could not make it to the parade this year, so check them out below!
