Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, New York City
Celebrating its 87th anniversary this year, New York City's Macy's Thanksgiving Day
Parade continues to be the official kick-off of NYC's holiday season. Every year, the
Macy's Parade is seen by more than 3 million people who line the streets of New York
and another 50 million people who tune into NBC to watch the giant balloons,
one-of-a-kind floats, the nation's best marching bands, hundreds of cheering clowns,
and a host of celebrities! Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to visit NYC!
On Thursday, November 28, 2013 at 9am, the dazzling spectacle began! Stepping off with
its signature giant helium character balloons, fantasy-filled floats, marching bands,
performance groups and a gaggle of clowns, America's Parade promised non-stop pomp and
pageantry for spectators young and old.
