2019 Chicago Thanksgiving Parade

Tsukasa Taiko’s Gintenkai, Asunaro, and Kagayaki performers completed another staged performance at the annual Chicago Thanksgiving Parade. The day starts early with 5:00 AM call times for camera rehearsals, followed by long wait times and live performance in often frigid temperatures. Many of our performers from the suburbs stay overnight in the city with their family to make the TV appearance! The Thanksgiving Parade is aired on local WGN 9 along with international streaming available on wgntv.com/live, with up to 3 million viewers.
