Holiday Magic

Can’t make it to America’s Thanksgiving Parade on Thursday in downtown Detroit? Then check out Royal Oak’s Holiday Magic this Saturday at 10 am.

What can you expect at Holiday Magic this year?

The parade is being cast as “Santa’s First Stop” in Southeastern Michigan, so Santa will be around, as will Mrs. Claus. Both will be in the parade, along with others like the Yak from the Free Press, the Grinch, and marching bands and dance teams from Royal Oak, Cass Tech and Utica high schools.

Stay warm with Starbucks starting at 9 am at Fourth and Washington or visit some of downtown Royal’s Oak cool shops for special discounts and get some of that dreaded holiday shopping over with. (Discounts go into effect at 8 am). The parade lasts from 10 – 11 am, and there will also be a stage in front of the Royal Oak Music Theatre featuring live music, including HotSauce, a smokin’ band from the D.

Kids can visit with the man of the hour from 11:30 to 1:30 at Andiamo Osteria at the corner of Second and Main.

Here’s a link for your best bets for parking.

If you can’t make it to Royal Oak for the parade, tune in: it will be televised this year for the first time. Catch it on Fox 2.

    Hint on parking in Royal Oak – I always park by the police station just to the east of downtown. It’s free, a very short walk (3 blocks at most), is a quick in-and-out, and is usually pretty empty. It’s right next to the police station and the farmers market.
