===========================================================

Have time for only one event today? Do this (of course):
Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade
starts W77th St. at Central Park West/ 9AM, FREE

“When the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade began in 1924, it featured a fanfare of live animals from the Central Park Zoo. But don’t expect to see tigers and elephants roaming 34th Street a century later. There are, however, four unusual new balloons to look forward to this year.

Olaf, the endearingly adorable snowman from “Frozen.” He is as wide as six taxi cabs and as long as 10 bicycles. He will not melt.
The Grinch, which has previously appeared in the parade as a balloon-float mix, what Macy’s called a “falloon.”
Paw Patrol’s Chase,
the parade pup that requires a whopping 90 dog walkers.
Super Wings’ Jett, the robot-plane that will be the widest balloon in the parade.”
(NYT-Today)

“As the story — however apocryphal it may be — goes, Macy’s employees asked the company to put on a parade in the mid-1920s. Many of them were first-generation immigrants who wanted to celebrate the place their families now called home, as well as the arrival of the holiday season. Jazz bands, employees in costume and even Santa Claus took part in a two-block procession that is now an annual tradition as synonymous with Thanksgiving as a turkey dinner.

This year is the 91st Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, which now covers far more blocks — it begins at 77th Street at Central Park West and ends on 34th Street in front of Macy’s.
At 9 a.m.; it will also be broadcast live on NBC.” (NYT-SpareTimes)

“You can expect to see performances from Dear Evan Hansen, Anastasia, the upcoming Once On This Island and the new SpongeBob SquarePants musical, all sandwiched between giant inflatable cartoon characters. On the pop front, highlights includes 98 Degrees, Jimmy Fallon and The Roots, Flo Rida, Wyclef Jean and…The Goo Goo Dolls, we guess?” Plenty more good info on the Parade and Thanksgiving @ Time Out NY

The rest of the day is turkey and football, so that’s all for today’s edition of NYCity123.com.
Come right back here tomorrow for our usual selection of carefully curated events.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!
