Experience Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

November 04, 2019

You can watch the Thanksgiving Parade on your TV, but what fun is that? This year, treat the family to an experience like no other on Thursday, November 28th. Join 3.5 million people on the vibrant streets of New York City to catch a glimpse of world-famous performers and the beloved giant balloons floating high above Manhattan. 

This year’s all-star lineup includes Black Eyed Peas, TLC, Ozuna, Debbie Gibson, Ciara, Billy Porter, Chris Janson, and more. However, the real stars are the massive balloons that brighten the holiday. Experience Snoopy Astronaut for the first time, alongside the debut of other familiar characters such as SpongeBob SquarePants and Gary, Chase from Paw Patrol, Goku the legendary hero from the Dragonball franchise, and the return of Smoky the Bear—who hasn’t been in the parade since 1993! Begin planning your adventures now by checking out the parade route in advance.
