Thanksgiving Day Parade Bingo 2020 - free printables

For years our family has done BINGO on Thanksgiving morning.  We watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade mark our BINGO squares, sip mimosas (not the kids of course), yell BINGO and win FUN prizes.  I used to the boards myself like a million yrs ago (ok, six yrs ago not a million).  Then I found a blog I NEED A PLAYDATE that did them and she did them way better than mine.  Not sure if she is doing them this year since the parade is a bit different this year.  From Macy's website-

LET'S CELEBRATE TOGETHER—AT HOME!

WATCH IT LIVE FROM 34TH STREET ONLY ON NBC,

THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 9AM-NOON IN ALL TIME ZONES!

Since we aren’t marching down the streets of NYC this year, the only place to see all the performances, gigantic balloons & fabulous floats is from the comfort & safety of your home.


With the parade and EVERYTHING looking different this year.  The things I can keep the same seem important right now.  So, if silly parade bingo is one of those things then making my boards again it is. 

There are 14 boards (if you need more just print more than one of a couple boards.  It's ok to have multiple winners.  Lord knows we can use a few wins these days.). You can print them at home (I like to do mine on cardstock), pick up some fun little prizes at the dollar store or on Amazon, buy scratch off lotto tickets or even just put up some cold hard cash in the pot per head.  We have used candy corn as markers in the past, turkey stickers, pennies or just pens to mark our squares. The GOBBLE GOBBLE GOBBLE square is your free space!  You must call out the square as you see them on TV and then mark your square. First one with five in a row WINS!  We play many more winners after that though. 

Side note - you may not know who some of the Stars are??  I didn't! You can check out Who's Who? on the line-up for the parade at - Parade Performances Line-up.  Also the NYPD logo square you get when the New York Police Department Band plays and the same goes for the FDNY Pipe and Drums.

***REMEMBER YOU CAN NOT USE THE PREVIEWS TO START YOUR BOARDS*** - they show a whole lot of the parade in the introduction before the parade even starts!  You have to wait for the official ribbon cutting to start your game- hopefully there is one this year.  This Thanksgiving I am grateful for so many things.  One of those things is that my kids (two of which are now in college) still want to play!
