Begin a New Tradition on Thanksgiving Morning: Watch the Chicago Thanksgiving Parade on CW26!

The holiday season is almost here, and there's no better way to jumpstart the festivities this Thanksgiving than by watching the Chicago Thanksgiving Parade at 8A on CW26! Hosted by Jesse Hutch (Dream Wedding and CW's Batwoman, Arrow, Supernatural) and Jen Lilley (Days of Our Lives, Royally Wrapped for Christmas), this vibrant procession down Chicago's legendary State Street features floats, bands, and special performers from across Chicagoland and the nation. Of course, no holiday celebration like this is complete until the appearance of Jolly Old St. Nick himself...Santa Claus!

Check out the full parade lineup below and tune in to the Chicago Thanksgiving Parade 2022 beginning at 8A-11A LIVE only on CW26.
