On a chilly Saturday, 145 units entertained thousands of attendees as they walked, marched, strutted, danced, drove and rode through downtown Silver Spring for the 20th Annual Montgomery County Thanksgiving Parade.

The parade was broadcast live on NewsChannel 8 and will be shown multiple times on Thanksgiving Day.

Here are some photos from the parade (all by Mike Diegel).
