‘Even More Special’: Residents Celebrate Thanksgiving Parade After Cancellation Last Year 

Montgomery County’s Thanksgiving Parade was canceled last year due to COVID-19, but it carried on this year and on Saturday several streets in Downtown Silver Spring shut down for the big event.

“There was a sense of community that was built over the last year because of the pandemic, that this is just even more special because we all get to come out and be together right before a really special holiday — Thanksgiving,” said Silver Spring resident Theresa McKillop, who attends every year.

The county’s event is the only Thanksgiving Parade in the Washington, D.C.-metro area, according to the Silver Spring Arts and Entertainment District.
