Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade
When: November 28, 2013
Where: Begins at 77th Street and Central Park West
This NYC Event is a holiday tradition that began 89 years ago. It is hard for many people to imagine Thanksgiving without the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. While 44 million people will tune in to watch the festivities on TV, others will make the journey to the city to enjoy all the sights and sounds live.
For some the fun begins the day before the parade. The huge balloons used in the parade are inflated a day early, and many people enjoy watching as the balloons come to life. This is a chance to get a little closer to the balloons than you will during the parade, and there is less of a crowd as well.
