    Nothing kicks off the holiday season like Thanksgiving in New York City – highlighted by the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! The 2-hour spectacle features marching bands, fabulous floats, talented performers, popular TV and movie stars– and of course the gigantic balloons that are the centerpiece of the parade.

    Did you know that the first parade in 1924 was called the "Macy's Christmas Day Parade" although it took place on Thanksgiving Day? Read more about the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, including this year's Parade Route!
