NEPTUNE BEACH, Fla. -- It's like nothing else in America say the hosts of a Thanksgiving Day street party in Neptune Beach.
Thousands packed First Street in Neptune Beach in front of Pete's Bar by 9:30 in the morning.
It has grown into a huge tradition, starting with just a few friends more than 30 years ago.
"Many many years ago my grandfather and great granddad were running the bar, their friends just came out on Thanksgiving, and it grew and grew into the celebration it is today," said Nancy Campbell, whose mother and two brothers run Pete's Bar.
"For lack of a better term it's organic, patron's of Pete's, the community of Neptune Beach, its really their party, and we just stay open to serve them, but we really really have enjoyed it, it is a family tradition now."
It is tradition to dress in Thanksgiving day themed outfits and hats and no telling what you might see.
