PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — We’re just 12 days away from the 6abc Dunkin’ Thanksgiving Day Parade.
As always, stars from all walks of life will be joining us for a party on the Parkway and Philadelphia Jeopardy! the champion will receive his own float.
Ryan Long from Mount Airy won 16 straight regular-season Jeopardy games and was fresh off the Tournament of Champions.
Now the former carpool driver will get a chance to thank all his Philly fans on the float he’ll be sharing with his 9-year-old son Nathan.
We have to break the news.
– Wait, are we going to the parade on a float? – screams Nathan. “My God! This is my biggest childhood dream!”
Ryan says he went to the parade as a kid. Even though he’s so humble and doesn’t like the limelight, he knew that joining us on the parade route was an opportunity he just couldn’t pass up, especially with his son.
“I’ll keep an eye on his face,” Ryan says. “It should be a good time. I’ll watch him and he’ll watch Santa.”
Join Ryan, Nathan and all the other stars on Thanksgiving morning.
Our broadcast starts at 8:30am on Thanksgiving Day on 6abc and wherever you stream.
