We got a chance to check out Hallmark Channel’s “Love at the Thanksgiving Day Parade” before it premiers November 4. I have to say I really enjoyed the movie. Hubby did too. “Love at the Thanksgiving Day Parade” brings romance to the holiday season in true Hallmark fashion. This is the story of two totally different people coming together amidst the fun and fanfare of Chicago’s Thanksgiving Day parade.

Two former arch enemies, each desperate to put on the best Thanksgiving Day Parade in the history of Chicago, will throw caution to the wind (and, directly into the path of marching bands, horses and riders) and fall in love before the last brightly festooned float rounds the corner in “Love At the Thanksgiving Day Parade,” a Hallmark Channel Original Movie starring Autumn Reeser (“No Ordinary Family”) and Antonio Cupo (“Bomb Girls”), premiering Sunday, November 4 (8p.m. ET/PT, 7C). Ben Cotton (“Hellcats”) also stars in the film.
Chicago native Emily Jones (Reeser) loves her city, and has dedicated her career to coordinating its beloved Thanksgiving Day parade every year. This year, Emily is hoping for a memorable holiday and anticipating a long-awaited proposal from her long-distance boyfriend Brian (Cotton). Then, the parade director hires a wealthy development consultant, Henry Williams (Cupo), to analyze the finances of the parade and increase profits. Immediately writing Henry off as a privileged playboy, Emily worries he will ruin the joyful spirit of the parade, not knowing how much it means to the city like she does. As the two are forced to work together to pull off a successful production, Emily is determined to show Henry she’s in charge. But when Emily suffers a sudden setback, she starts to rely on Henry to help her through it, and suddenly realizes she might be falling for him. As Thanksgiving draws nearer, can Emily confess her true feelings and end the feud, while still putting on the parade of her dreams?
