Event description:

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.

About Children's Museum of Manhattan

The Children's Museum of Manhattan inspires children and families to learn about themselves and our culturally diverse world through a unique environment of interactive exhibitions and programs. Since opening in a neighborhood storefront in 1973, CMOM has grown into a 38,000-square-foot learning facility with outreach programs at nearly 50 sites throughout New York City. 

CMOM focuses on four priority areas to impact children in ways that will last a lifetime:

  • Early childhood education prepares children for success in school.
  • Creativity in the arts and sciences inspires creative and analytical thinking skills for lifelong learning.
  • Healthy lifestyles programs provide a blueprint for a family's physical, emotional and environmental well-being.
  • Exploration of world cultures gives children awareness, understanding and context for the diverse society in which we all live.
