The 65th annual Belk Carolinas' Carrousel Parade went off without a hitch Thursday.
The parade is a Thanksgiving tradition in the Charlotte-area. It attracts participation from both Carolinas and thousands of people will line the streets of uptown to watch the floats, marching bands, and local personalities - including your favorite WBTV on-air talent.
Dr. Heath Morrison, the new superintendent of Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools, served as the 2012 Grand Marshal.
"I am honored and delighted to serve as the Grand Marshal for the Carolinas' Carrousel parade this year," said Dr. Morrison. "This is a special holiday for us – our first Thanksgiving celebrated in Charlotte, our new home – and leading this historic parade that is such a longstanding regional tradition will make the holiday even more special for us."
Three-time Olympic medalist and three-time world champion swimmer Ricky Berens is back home in Charlotte and also took part in the parade.
"I am extremely excited to be a part of the Belk Carolina's Carrousel Parade this year," said Berens. "As a native of Charlotte and living here for 18 years of my life, it is incredible to come back home and see the support this community has given me throughout my swimming career."
In 2008, the parade was recognized as the fourth largest Thanksgiving parade in the country.
The parade is presented by the Carolinas' Carrousel, Inc., a non-profit organization that recognizes many talented young people for their achievements and talents through the Carrousel Scholarship Program and the Band Scholarship Program.
2012 is the 45th year of the Carrousel Scholarship Program, which held its award ceremony Wednesday night. For more information about the Carrousel Scholarship program, click here.
