The Carolinas' Carrousel Parade evolved over more than six decades as a regional tradition and highlight of the holiday season. Founded in 1947 by four local businessmen to attract holiday shoppers to downtown Charlotte, the Thanksgiving week events became so much more. Through 2012, the Parade and its ancillary events were produced by an independent, volunteer, non-profit, charitable organization, Carolinas' Carrousel, Inc.
The parade has grown in size and diversity and it is the largest annual gathering of Carolinians, drawing close to 100,000 spectators each year. In 2012, the television broadcast of the parade was seen by approximately 100,000 people. Over 120 units participated in the parade, including area marching bands, floats sponsored by local organizations and corporations, step and drill teams, entertainers and other specialty units. In November 2012, US News & World Report included the Carrousel Parade on its list of America's Best Thanksgiving Day Parade.
Come out and enjoy a great day in the beautiful city of Charlotte, NC!!
