Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is an annual parade in New York City presented by the U.S.-based department store chain Macy’s. The parade first took place in 1924, and has since become one of the most popular and iconic events in the city.

The parade features giant balloons, floats, marching bands, and performers from all over the world. The balloons are the most popular attraction, and some of the most famous ones include Snoopy, Ronald McDonald, and the Pillsbury Doughboy. The floats are also elaborate and creative, and often feature themes from popular movies, TV shows, or books.

The parade starts at 77th Street and Central Park West, and ends at Macy’s Herald Square. It takes about 3 hours to complete the route, and millions of people line the streets to watch.
