Thanksgiving Parade

Plymouth annually has a Thanksgiving celebration the Saturday before Thanksgiving.
Our good friends, the Thain family, who have temporarily moved to Plymouth, asked us to join them and friends in marching next to the Mayflower float. The Thain family are from Hawaii. They have an amazing story of how they moved to Plymouth- more on that in a later post!

Thank you for sharing the photos of the parade! We missed that, but it sounded like it was a special event.

It was a blessing to meet your family at the tour.
