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. Don’t expect to see tigers and elephants roaming 34th Street a century later. “But you will see a lineup that features 16 giant balloons; 43 novelty balloons; heritage balloons; balloonicles and trycallons (hybrid balloons and vehicles); and balloonheads (hybrid costume characters). Some of the new characters blowing hot air include Saiyan warrior Goku from “Dragon Ball Super: Brody.” You’ll still be able to see some old favorites, such as Charlie Brown, The Grinch and the Pillsbury Doughboy. Look out for the new floats, including Elf Pets by The Elf on the Shelf.” (USA 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 92nd 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.”
Diana Ross, John Legend, Martina McBride and the Muppets from “Sesame Street” are scheduled to perform, despite an extreme cold weather alert for performers and onlookers alike. 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.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!
