Register now to ride in the 2021 Thanksgiving parade in Plymouth, MA!

The Mayflower Society House will be featured in the Plymouth, MA Thanksgiving Day Parade through 2021. This parade has received an award for being one of the best parades in the country. After the cost of the float, all proceeds will go to the Meetinghouse. If we find that many members want to come to Plymouth for Thanksgiving and ride in floats, we will look into extending our contract with the event.
