David Arquette, who will be in town starring in the new “Sherlock Holmes” play at the Oriental Theatre, has been tapped to serve as the grand marshal of the annual McDonald’s Thanksgiving Parade. The “Scream” actor will be joined by superstar chef Graham Elliot and “Once Upon a Time” actress and Skokie native Jessy Schram as honored guests at the parade.

On top of all that, the Willis Clan — who wowed the judges on “America’s Got Talent” and now star on a TLC reality series — will be joining the parade with a staged performance in the first hour.

The McDonald’s Thanksgiving Parade will air from 8 to 11 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 26, on WGN-Channel 9 and on WGN America. The annual holiday event will feature the nation’s top marching bands and other performance units, plus the always popular giant helium balloon characters, making their way down State Street.
