Parade begins at 77th Street and Central Park West
Upper West Side, NY 10024
Description: As much a part of Turkey Day as family feasts, post-consumption naps, and watching football, the 86th Annual Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade returns this year to the delight of families across the nation. The floats, performers, and larger-than-life balloons promise endless entertainment. The parade line-up includes performances by Spirit of America Dance and Camp Broadway Kids, among others, and even younger kids will recognize their favorite characters in balloon form, like the Kool-Aid man, Buzz Lightyear, and SpongeBob. Not brave enough to bundle up the little ones and battle the crowds gathered across Manhattan? Not a problem. You can watch the whole thing on TV while still in your PJs (check your local listings).
