Montgomery County held its annual Thanksgiving parade in downtown Silver Spring Saturday.
Hundreds of people came out Saturday for the annual Montgomery County Thanksgiving Parade, held in downtown Silver Spring. Normally busy roads were shut down as the festive floats rolled through the area.
State Sen. Jamie Raskin who represents Silver Spring and Takoma Park said it's one of the best parts of the holiday.
"You know, so much of the pressure on holidays is just to go shop, and this is nice because the community comes together and we get to see all the beautiful diversity and all the great things going on," says Raskin. "I just saw Silver Stars Gymnastics and All the Right Moves Chess Movement, and the bands from all over the place."
The District doesn't hold a Thanksgiving parade, so the Silver Spring parade steals a lot of attention from surrounding communities.
