The 6abc Thanksgiving Day Parade is an annual parade held every Thanksgiving Day in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania since 1920. It is currently sponsored by and aired on ABC's affiliated Pennsylvanian television station, WPVI-TV.

The oldest Thanksgiving parade in the country, it was originally known as the Gimbels Thanksgiving Day Parade until the department store's closure in 1987. Since then the parade has been sponsored by WPVI (channel 6 for the Philadelphia area) and an additional sponsor which has included Dunkin' Donuts, IKEA and Boscov's.

The parade features balloons from Fabulous Inflatables parade balloons as well as walk-around characters from Sesame Place.
