Meryl Davis & Charlie White: America's Thanksgiving Day Parade Grand Marshals!

Thanksgiving might be five months away, but America is already preparing for the parades and so are Meryl Davis and newly engaged Charlie White.

The Olympic champions were just named as the Grand Marshals for America’s Thanksgiving Parade 2014.

“We are incredibly honored to announce Meryl Davis and Charlie White as Grand Marshals for this year’s parade,” Tony Michaels, president & CEO of The Parade Company shared in a statement. “It has been thrilling to follow these two metro-Detroiters as they made history in the 2014 Winter Olympics and we are excited to celebrate them during America’s Thanksgiving Parade presented by Art Van.”

Meryl added, “I am grateful to be a part of America’s Thanksgiving Parade presented by Art Van, a cherished tradition I have grown up with. I look forward to traveling down Woodward Avenue on Thanksgiving morning and experiencing the parade with family, friends and fellow Detroiters who have showed me such strong support throughout my career.”

“It is an honor to be selected as a Grand Marshal for America’s Thanksgiving Parade presented by Art Van,” Charlie shared. “I am humbled to be a part of one of the best Thanksgiving parades in the country and have the opportunity to celebrate with the hundreds of thousands of Detroiters who attend this remarkable tradition.”

The 2014 America’s Thanksgiving Parade presented by Art Van will be held on Thursday, November 27th

Interesting. They announce their “year off” and not they are talking as singular people. They’ve always said “we” when answering questions or giving press. Now Meryl is “my career”. Charlie is honored to be “one” of the Grand Marshall’s.

Guess the writing is on the wall. Its over. Seems like Charlie is abandoning his career with Meryl and she has no other choice to do the same.
