In some cities across America, once Halloween has run its course, folks eagerly turn their attention directly to Christmas. Here in New York, however, we know that November means Thanksgiving, and, if you’re one of the 50 million viewers who tune in to NBC on Thanksgiving Day, you know that the morning of Thursday, November 23, means just one thing: the 94th annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. The largest parade on earth, Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is known the world over for its procession of live musical acts, dancers and cheerleaders, marching bands, floats, and, of course, the massive cartoon character balloons that soar high above the city. This year’s special guests will include Olaf of Frozen fame, PAW Patrol’s intrepid Chase, and that dastardly Grinch (who’s still determined to steal Christmas). We hope you’ll join as, either in person or at home via the live broadcast, as the procession makes its way south along the western edge of Central Park, turns east at 59th St., then heads South again on 6 Ave. before turning west at 34th St. one last time to finish up at 7th Avenue.
