It's Thanksgiving week, and families and friends are preparing for their reunions around a feast this Thursday. Part of the annual tradition for many families, including my own, is to watch both the Sun Bowl Parade and the Macy's Day parade on Thanksgiving Day.

This year, El Pasoans can cheer on locals during both parades inlcuding the UTEP Cheer Team who will be featured in this year's Macy's Day Parade.
