Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

The Annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade® marks the start of the holiday season with a beloved spectacle featuring giant helium balloons, floats of wonder, pulse-pounding marching bands, engaging performance groups, celebrity appearances and our special Santa Claus.

More than 8,000 participants, some donning clown costumes, handling balloon giants or striking up the band, set off down the streets of Manhattan at the sound of the time-honored catchphrase "Let's Have a Parade." With a live audience more than 3.5 million strong and a nationwide television gathering of more than 50 million viewers, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is the nation's most beloved holiday pageant.
