Thousands of St. Louisans will begin their Thanksgiving in downtown St. Louis at the 2012 Ameren Missouri Thanksgiving Day Parade. Watching the parade has been a tradtion for many local families for decades. Dozens of marching bands, floats, balloons and more help kick off the holiday season in St. Louis.
The parade begins at Fourth Street and Washington, then heads down Market Street to 10th Street. If you can't make it downtown, you can watch coverage of the parade live on KMOV Channel 4 from 8:45 a.m. to 11 a.m.
