For 88 years, Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade has been the official kick-off to the holiday season! Every year, this Emmy Award winning tradition is seen by more than 3.5 million people in New York and 50 million people at home, all tuned in to see giant balloons, one-of-a-kind floats, amazing performances and much, much more.
Formation for the parade will begin at 8 AM at the following locations:
• West 77th Street between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue
• West 81st Street between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue
• Central Park West between West 77th and 86th Streets
For street closures, please check the street closure map.
The course travels along Willowbrook’s White Trail and around the lake; it is mostly flat and well suited for novice runners and walkers as well as more competitive athletes. The race is professionally timed culminating in an awards ceremony.
Fall Flat is brought to you by King of the Mountain Events, the Greenbelt Conservancy, and NYC Parks. Registration is required; check the link for cost.
