For a truly classic start to your holidays, make plans to attend the grand-daddy of all parades – the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in NYC.
It’s happening on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 23.
Here’s everything you need to know about attending the Thanksgiving Day Parade, the unofficial kick-off to the holidays in New York.
The classic parade route begins at Central Park West and 77th Street, heads out to 6th Avenue, and finishes off on 34th Street at Macy’s Herald Square. Get a good viewing spot along Central Park West, Central Park South, or 6th Avenue.
As always, the parade promises an impressive lineup including giant balloons, star appearances, floats that spark your imagination, live performances, marching bands, and more.
Just a few of the balloons you’ll see include Hello Kitty, the Red Power Ranger, Pikachu, and Spongebob Squarepants.
Make your parade viewing even more memorable and stay at a conveniently located, central hotel like the Wilshire Grand. See the biggest parade of the year, get into the holiday spirit, and kick off Christmas in New York the right way.
