MACY'S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE

Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade small logo
NBC officially kicks off the holiday season with the live broadcast of the annual MACY'S THANKSGIVING DAY PARADE from New York City. Broadcast on NBC since 1948, America's most beloved procession marches in the holidays with dazzling doses of spectacle, enchantment and tradition.

Where else can you find 50-foot balloons, floats, cheerleaders, dancers, performance groups, clowns, marching bands and, of course, celebrity performers? Thousands of participants take to the streets for the celebration - and it all caps off with the very first seasonal appearance of the jolly man in the red suit. Enjoyed for generations, it's a national pastime to be thankful for.
