Throughout the past couple of years, we have been consumed by so much that we forgot about certain traditions that we love in our city. Well, we’re finally able to enjoy some of those traditions that includes the most wonderful time of the year in the best city in the world. We missed the holidays in New York so much that we were excited to sit in traffic on Fifth Avenue! The tourists seems to be back and its beginning to look a lot like Christmas. But, not before the parade!
Obviously, we’re talking about the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! It’s the unofficial beginning of the Holiday Season in New York and we have never been more excited for it to come marching down our streets! Many people consider watching Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade to be as much a part of Thanksgiving as eating turkey and watching football (we certainly do). Heck the day begins with the parade, which starts at 9 a.m. Eastern on Thanksgiving. This holiday tradition has been taking place for millions of people for close to 100 years.
“For more than 9 decades, the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade has served to bring joy to millions, who gather with friends and family to experience this one-of-a-kind holiday celebration along the streets of New York City and in homes nationwide,” Will Coss, executive producer of Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, said in a statement. “For our 95th celebration, Macy’s has created a spectacle to remember featuring a dazzling array of high-flying balloons, animated floats, and incredible performers.”
For the first time since 2019, spectators will be able to enjoy live bands, high-flying balloons and more. All volunteers and staff will have to be vaccinated and will also be wearing masks. The number of parade participants will also be reduced this year as an extra precaution, down about 20 percent from past years. It’s back and we can’t wait!
