This two-day celebration is all about our city's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Families enjoy learning about the puppeteer, Tony Sarg, who invented the idea of the “upside-down puppets” (those giant helium balloons), create a 3D float inspired by some of the parade’s most famous designs, and take part in a dance party and musical parade.
Some programs have limited space and require sign-up for entry. Sign-up in the lobby one hour before the event.
Address: 212 W. 83rd St. Upper West Side, NY 10024
