Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Macys Thanksgiving Day Parade

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, so is the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a longstanding tradition dating back to 1924, making it the second-oldest Thanksgiving Parade in Detroit. The parade will be held on Thanksgiving day, November 23rd. The parade will start 30 minutes earlier than usual at 8:30, to make more room for more floats. The parade will start at 77th St and Central Park West with an opening theme of “New York, New York”, then head down to 34th St towards Macy’s Herald Square with an ending theme of “Santa Claus Arrives to the Parade.”

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has so many fun things lined up for us to watch and enjoy. They have 25 balloons, 6 balloonicles, 31 floats, 11 marching bands, 18 performers, 29 clown crew, and 7 performance groups. Some of their well known performers include Ashley Park, Cher, Miss America Grace Stanke, and Pentatonix. The Big Apple Circus, The Tap Dancing Christmas Trees, and Spirit of America also plan to showcase their amazing skills for us. There truly is something for everyone in the parade that you will love, and a fun time is guaranteed.

Although it would be so fun and exciting to attend the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in person, many of us cannot. With that being said, you can watch the parade live on NBC and will be simulcast on Peacock and as a Spanish-language broadcast on Telemundo.
