85th Anniversary Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade -
Add to Calendar 24-11-2011 24-11-2011 15 85th Anniversary Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade A holiday tradition like no other, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade celebrates its 85th anniversary this year with a cornucopia of treats for the whole family, including 15 giant character balloons like Paul Frank's iconic monkey Julius and Sonic the Hedgehog, 44 novelty balloons and ballonicles (balloon vehicles), and 27 out-of-this-world floats including Zhu-niverse! and Frozen Fall Fun. In keeping with tradition, the parade will also feature hundreds of clowns, exciting performance groups, 11 pulse-pounding marching bands, celebrity performers, and the one-and-only Santa Claus. The Macy's Thanksgiving Parade will step-off this year at 77th Street and Central Park West. The procession will travel down to Columbus Circle, turn onto Central Park South, before making a right turn to march down Seventh Avenue to 42nd Street. The Parade will then turn east towards Sixth Avenue where it will march down the Avenue of the Americas. At 34th Street, the Parade will make its final turn west, marching in front of Macy's Herald Square. This year, for those watching the parade broadcast from home, the TODAY Show's Matt Lauer, Ann Curry, and Al Roker will treat viewers, from 9am-12pm (in all time zones), to Thanksgiving's best entertainment. In addition to covering the parade, the broadcast will also include exclusive performances by Broadway shows like "How to Success in Business Without Really Trying," "Sister Act," and "Spider Man: Turn Off the Dark." The telecast will also feature a special performance from the world-famous Radio City Rockettes. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2014neweventinfo.cfm?id=95548 true DD/MM/YYYY
