Is anyone else planning on attending the Thanksgiving Parade Thursday? This is the first year my son is old enough to go and I have never been before so I'm super excited! Can anyone recommend a good place to view the parade or how early we should arrive?

I wouldn’t go to large public gatherings these days 😕


Well, Prizker is governor of the entire state and he has very little control over how the city of Chicago is ran. I voted for him twice because he fulfilled the campaign promises I expected statewide.

The mayor of Chicago and the AG, however, is a whole different conversation.

Attended in 2018, and had a wonderful time.

I think people were lining up on the parade route at 7.

Streets will be blocked off, plan your parking/transit accordingly.


Yeah, the kids aren’t super excited to be getting up that early on an off day but I think they will change their minds once the parade starts!


New here. I’ve never been. Take me next year? 😂

I love my children more than anything but how do people do it?!

Live in a highrise and moving. Want to get rid of a lot of furniture including a sleeper sofa (which many pickup services won’t take). I don’t care if I get a penny from it and am willing to pay to get rid of it, in fact. But I’d prefer to not spend much time on it because I have a demanding job, and I also have the constraint of needing to schedule the loading bay and freight elevator in my building (i.e., can’t just sell on Craigslist and have a rando pick up at a random time).
