Stamford Thanksgiving Parade

Posted by editor on 11/13/18

There’s no reason to head into the city on Thanksgiving after you’ve given our local Stamford parade a visit! Touted as one of the largest giant helium balloon parades in the country and so very close to your Castle apartment. Travel just 20 minutes to downtown Stamford to see and feel the roar of the crowd.

This year the parade will feature everyone’s favorite giant balloon characters including Clifford, The Big Red Dog! Although you exercise regularly in your state of the art gym located at The Castle complex, you may want to “step on high” with the award winning marching bands as they stroll through the streets performing a tune. There are also many fabulous floats to add excitement to the day. Fun for the whole family! Ginormous balloons play a huge role in the Macy’s parade on Thanksgiving Day. Having already seen them up close, on T’day you can stay in your PJ’s and watch TV all while in the comfort of your Castle apartment!
