Detroit's Cultural Community - 5:09
with Tony Michaels, President & CEO, The Parade Company
Posted Nov 29, 2017
The Michigan Thanksgiving Parade, now known as America's Thanksgiving Parade® presented by Art Van, was founded in 1924. For more than 75 years, The Parade has been a one-of-a-kind spectacle of fantasy, holiday spirit and community enthusiasm. The Parade has grown to include more than 75 parade units, including floats, balloons and marching bands in procession. America's Thanksgiving Parade® presented by Art Van is Detroit's most visible civic event, a positive demonstration of the best this community has to offer to its people and the greater American community. Exceptional curbside attendance as well as extensive “live” radio and television coverage, on a regional and national level, combine to create unparalleled marketing and promotional exposure for the City of Detroit. Tony Michaels of The Parade Company joins host Laurel Hess to talk about being a part of Detroit's transformation. Interview recorded November 16th, 2017.
