In 1988, KTRK abc13 broadcast the Houston Foley's Thanksgiving Day Parade live from downtown with hosts Alan Thicke during the heights of ABC's Growing Pains, with Don Nelson and Jan Glenn who were hosting Good Morning Houston at the time.

KTRK did it big that year and broadcast the parade across Texas, Oklahoma, Arizona and New Mexico.

Thicke, who is Canadian and probably didn't have an issue with working on an US holiday, opened the show with the fact that he was excited about sitting next to Glenn.
