Ameren Missouri Thanksgiving Day Parade

Celebrating its 30th year, the 2014 Ameren Missouri Thanksgiving Day Parade will step off at 8:45 a.m. on Thursday, November 27. The parade will be broadcast live on KMOV-TV Channel 4’s “Great Day St. Louis.”

We expect over 130 parade units, such as musical floats and displays, giant helium balloon figures, animal units and marching bands from around the St. Louis region.  As always, Santa Claus will be present to wish everyone a Merry Christmas at the end of the parade.

As a Christmas in St. Louis partner, the St. Louis Convention & Visitors Commission will once again participate in this year’s parade.The annual Ameren Missouri Thanksgiving Day Parade is hosted by Christmas in St. Louis along with presenting sponsor Ameren Missouri and the City of St. Louis. 

*Due to construction at the Gateway Arch, the 2014 parade route is yet to be determined.
