Floats, marching bands and celebrity guests at WPXI Holiday Parade will usher in the holiday season.
Thanksgiving weekend is the traditional start of the holiday season. As part of your family’s holiday festivities, why not celebrate the season at the WPXI Holiday Parade on November 28, 2015, at 9 a.m. in downtown Pittsburgh? In keeping with the Spirit of Pittsburgh Parades Past, you and your family will enjoy traditional holiday floats, performances by national and local celebrities and your favorite high school marching bands. There will be giant parade balloons and, of course, Santa Claus.
Relive the joy and wonder of the holidays by seeing fantastic floats, gigantic balloons and talented performers. Celebrity performances will abound and might include ‘60s pop stars, Motown songs and holiday specials. Rumor has it that “The Voice” finalist, Chris Jamison, will be performing at this year’s parade.
You’ll revel in the sounds of traditional holiday songs played by Pittsburgh's and the surrounding area’s high school marching bands. Gigantic parade balloons are always a favorite with children of all ages. You’ll see famous cartoon characters from your childhood as well as traditional parade favorites floating above the crowds. The real star of the show, whether you call him Saint Nick, Papa Noel or Santa Claus, will be there spreading holiday cheer and brightening the faces of all people, young and old.
As part of your Thanksgiving weekend, we invite you to stay with us at the Sheraton Pittsburgh Hotel at Station Square. After the parade, join us for our Thanksgiving Buffet at our Trackside Restaurant from Noon to 3:00pm*. Our delectable offerings include herb roasted turkey with gravy and house made cranberry relish and maple bourbon glazed ham along with all the trimmings.
