4. TEDxSeattle 2018: Tall Order.
November 17th, 2018
"A tall order, by definition, is demanding. It’s a significant and potentially unreachable challenge. Looking to the past, we can find wildly successful tall orders. Some may even seem small when viewed through the lens of today’s challenges. This year, we identify and examine ideas that stretch goals, strive for the seemingly unattainable, and explore what happens when a goal proves to be too tall.”

The parade starts at 9 a.m. at 7th Avenue and Pine St, it then moves toward 5th Avenue, 4th Avenue, and finishes at Westlake Center. It features inflatable floats, but not as huge as at the NYC parade. Snow globes filled with people, giant cupcakes and Santa's sleigh are common holiday-themed floats. Also, there are marching bands, athletes, cheerleaders, vintage cars, and drill teams. After the parade, kids go to the annual Santaland to take pictures with Santa. The Thanksgiving Parade is a Seattle holiday tradition that has existed for more than 50 years!"
