From Reserved Indoor Seats
Parade guests inside Veterans Memorial Coliseum have a true window on the world, as the curtains are open so natural light and views of the river and the west hills enhance the parade experience. These secure, weatherproof seats eliminate the hassle of staking a claim on the street, and include creature comforts with cushioned seating, restroom facilities, and announcers. Tickets are expected to go on sale the day after Thanksgiving, November 24, 2023.
On Parade Day:
Doors Open: 7:30 a.m.
