DETROIT (WWJ) – Hundreds of people gathered at Ford Field Friday night for the annual Hob Nobble Gobble – the fundraiser for Detroit’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Among the attendees Lions coach Jim Schwartz, who saw the traditional field covered with carnival rides, games, and a music stage.

Lions Head Coach Jim Schwartz.

“It’s always a different perspective … I don’t know my way around here very well other than the locker room and the field,” said Schwartz. “It’s cool to see it decorated this way.”

In an interesting twist, DMC CEO Mike Duggan, who’s considering a run for mayor, had a sit-down at the party with Mayor Bing.

Duggan told WWJ’s Sandra McNeil that the conversation with Bing was very positive.

Duggan says it was a cordial conversation and that the two have always gotten along, even joking that Mayor Bing said every night as a mayor is like the party atmosphere of the Hob Nobble Gobble.

The Parade theme is, “An 86 Year Tradition,” and The Parade Company notes that America’s Thanksgiving Parade will begin at 9:05 on Woodward Avenue and Mack and end at Woodward Avenue and Congress on Thursday, November 22.
