Thanksgiving Day Parade is from the Non MAU series The Spectacular Spider-Man.

The Thanksgiving Day Parade is a popular event that occurs every year on Thanksgiving Day in New York City. It is a large event that takes up many blocks of the city. Many people from all works of life come from all around to watch the parade.


Everyone's favorite friendly neighborhood Spider-Man did get his own float in 1987

The most notable feature of the parade is the large parade balloons. These humongous helium-filled balloon are shaped like large characters such as a fish, turkey, pilgrim, gorilla, Statue of Liberty, clown-colored bear, dinosaur, football player, cat, bee, and mustang. However, the balloons require many people to hold them down or else they will float away. Also, if punctured they can cause near-explosive releases of the air inside.

The best bands get to go

Many high school bands come from around the area to march and play their instruments, such as those from Midtown Manhattan Magnet High School and Wood Oaks High School. Often, the football players and cheerleaders will hold balloons of their mascots down the parade route.

Spider-Man vs Venom

Venom, the combination of Eddie Brock and the alien symbiote, wanted to hurt Spider-Man/Peter Parker emotionally and physically. He threatened those that Peter loves most and the hero assumed he meant Mary Jane Watson.

Thankful that there are webslingers

Spider-Man found Mary Jane who was with Flash Thompson but not in danger. He then saw Eddie with Gwen but lost them. Eddie became Venom and kidnapped her. He tied her up to the Wood Oaks gorilla balloon and let her hang from the hand.

Thankful they were able to grab the hand

Spider-Man found her but Venom prevented him from saving her. After some back and forth Spider-Man landed on the gorilla and tricked Venom into scratching the balloon so it would slowly deflate. However, the webbing broke but Spider-Man saved her. Venom caused him to drop her but thankfully her fellow students Mary Jane, Flash, Kenny Kong, Liz Allen, Sally Avril, Randy Robertson, and Hobbie Brown use the gorilla's deflated paw to catch her.

Thankful the Force is strong with him

Venom and Spider-Man fought on the streets until Venom once again got the upper hand. Spider-Man faked giving up and the symbiote left Eddie to return to Spider-Man. However, Peter's mental strength was strong and he fought off the symbiote. He scooped the alien into a remnant of the gorilla then left Eddie unconscious.


The parade is based on the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. But since Macy's is a registered trademark, any specific reference is removed making it a generic parade.

The real parade is dominated by balloons based on popular characters, such as Spider-Man who first appeared in 1987.
